My Students

My English Language Learners are comprised of a variety of backgrounds and cultures and aim to learn and understand English in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. We are in a high poverty, low income school with Title I status in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The majority of our students are from low-income households and qualify for free lunches. As seen in the latest news, our state compared to the rest of the nation has the worst discrepancy of funding between the rich and poor. It is truly an injustice. Despite such hardship, my students deserve learning opportunities where they can grow and support each other as contributive citizens of this global society.

My Project

My English Language learners love coming to school and learn English Language skills! Unfortunately, due to budget issues and the influx of student population, some of our chairs have been taken away from our classroom this year. The chairs that we currently share are either broken or not the correct type of chairs for our tables. We would love to have the right chairs so that students can practice reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in their seats everyday.

We can't get replacements right now so we would so greatly appreciate these sturdy student chairs so my students can sit comfortably and take on the day!
