My Students

I have a diverse group of fantastic students. However, the majority of my students come from the public housing system in NYC, along with an increasing number of English Language Learners.

"The greatest natural resource is the minds of our children."- Walt Disney

They are a wonderful group of students who love to explore and learn as well as amaze me on a daily basis. Even though many of them face very harsh realities, they still come in excited to learn and happy to be in school. My students find comfort in the school; for some, it is one of the few constants in life they can count on. Working in a large urban city school with very limited resources, I have learned to be creative when it comes to providing my students with resources.

My Project

Literacy centers are a crucial component in helping close the gaps in Kindergarten children. There are so many resources available on line to help differentiate instruction so students get the can grow in the areas of need. However, we do not have a printer that is working so I can print out the materials students need.

This printer will provide students the opportunity to have literacy centers that address their individual needs.

By having a high yield printer inside the classroom, I will not run into this problem. I will now be able to print out all these fabulous resources I have set aside on my teachers pay teacher and Pintrest account for my students.
