My Students

Our students are bright and curious young learners who come to school each day trying to do their best. They attend a Title I school. About half of the students in my school are in the process of learning a second language, and many came to this country recently as refugees. These students are not only learning a new language but also trying to adjust to life in a new country and recover from the trauma they faced.

As teachers in a low-income, high poverty, and refugee school with a lot of English language learners, we see our students face challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Despite the many challenges our students face, challenges that make it more difficult for them to get a good eduction, they come ready to learn and do their best.

As a 4th grade team we have over 7 languages in our class we try our best to give every student everything possible to be successful and learn!

My Project

My classroom has a large number of English Language learners, about half of my students are currently learning English at different ability levels. Due to this and other circumstances, many of my students are below proficiency in reading. As a school, we have programs in place specifically designed to help all students, but especially those who are learning English as their second language and those with special needs.

There are over 7 languages in my class, some students have been in the United States for a year or less.

The ability for all of my students; those with special needs, those learning English, all of them to achieve their full potential is my goal. I am trying to get a classroom set of headphones so my students are able to use the programs we have in place fully. As of now, students are trying to listen to the lessons (which are at their individual level, very beneficial for our English Language Learners and our students with special needs) while everyone else has different lessons going. In addition, part of the programs have them practice speaking and reading, so they are trying to record over other students. This is difficult to do with our current headphone situation.

Having these headphones will allow students to be more successful in using the programs to learn English, practice reading, and be successful in their lives, which is my main goal as a teacher.
