About My Students

My students are hardworking, and determined individuals. Our class consists of multi-level learners. Our school is a high-poverty, Title I school, meaning that more than 75% of our students receive free or reduced lunches. Our school is in a high poverty neighborhood, and many of the opportunities are provided to the children through the school, community, and people like you, who with their generosity and commitment to students' achievement.

My students' work very hard every day. Our class has a 96% attendance rate, which means the students rarely miss school. We value our learning time. In our classroom, we focus on self-care skills as well as community and life skills that will make students be able to live as independently as possible.

They are an absolutely a great group of students that are full of life. You can't help but get excited about teaching when you are around them. We are always looking for ways to work on not only self-care skills while being physically active but also broadening their worldview and how to become a functioning member of society once they exit high school.

With the Chromebooks, we will get to use our Financial Literacy Pathways to gain a deeper understanding of financial skills and terms, solve problems pertaining to profits, and determine if our income allows for a certain expense given real-world word problems. We will also get to participate in a team building stock market game that teaches us about saving money. We can not do all these things consistently because we don't have enough computers in our classroom.

In Their Own Words

If our project is funded we will have many more opportunities to learn and expand our financial literacy. We all come from backgrounds that school supplies typically are funded by our teacher. Chromebooks are a huge expense, therefore; this would greatly help us have an item we need for success and Mrs. Hodges not have to figure out a way to get them for us.

We are responsible for our teams in our stock market. We are also responsible for our budgets and balance sheets. This is very difficult when we all have to share 10 working Chromebooks between 20 students and more getting added to our class weekly. When we get our new Chromebooks, they will be assigned to a station so that students are held accountable to not only what they are doing, but the care of the Chromebook as well. Hopefully, one day, we can be one-to-one, when happens then we will be able to apply all the knowledge-based skills Mrs. Hodges is teaching us to continually use and implement independently on a consistent basis.

If our project is funded we will have many more opportunities to learn and expand our financial literacy. We all come from backgrounds that school supplies typically are funded by our teacher. Chromebooks are a huge expense, therefore; this would greatly help us have an item we need for success and we would be able to be engaged on them more frequently. Our class size has doubled this year causing Mrs. Hodges to have to be inventive on how to get these skills to us in creative ways.
