My students need back to school supplies, including pencils, glue, crayons, highlighters, and paper.
I'm a teacher in a high poverty, low performing school. My students are faced with many challenges, in, and out of the classroom. In spite of the many challenges they face, I try to make things as simple as possible for them, and provide them with meaningful and engaging learning experiences.
My students love to read, love to learn new math concepts, and they love to move.
Many of my students are raised in single parent households, with a parent that works multiple jobs, while others may live with many extended family members and friends. All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the "typical" childhood experiences.
From the moment they walk into my door, I focus on their potential, and the amount of growth they can make. I may not be able to control their home lives, but I can control their experiences throughout the school day. By doing this in a creative and engaging way, I hope to inspire our future leaders on a path of academic success.
Did you know that school supplies are not funded by schools? When parents are on a fixed income, buying school supplies can often be a challenge, especially if the family has multiple children. This results in teachers spending their own money throughout the year on school supplies. This grant will help my students kids get the things they need in order to be successful this year in school. Some of the included items are crayons, pencils, glue, highlighters, and paper. We will use these items continually throughout the school year, throughout the day in all of our subject areas! These are our tools for learning!
