My Students

I currently have 56 students in my fourth-grade class. My students are great students who have a love for technology, reading, writing, science, math, and social studies. They are very excited about learning, and I want to make the class interactive. I want to help them succeed in their challenging environment. I teach an inclusion class. I have four students who are autistic in my class.

The students in my classroom are a diverse group of children who come from intricate family backgrounds.

Our school is located across the street from two homeless shelters for families. It is an upstart program that helps students and their families get help to find permanent housing. I teach at a low-income school and in a classroom full of eager learners who are enthusiastic about coming to school every day!

My Project

My students are in need of paper, a pencil sharpener, and labels for their folders and pencils to use in our reading class. Basic supplies are needed for my students. They will use the pencils every single day so that they can take notes.

This year my students really struggled to bring in the basics.

Pencils and paper are just some of the basics they need in order to be successful this year. These are the basic necessities to help my students continue learning this school year.

My students will be able to use the resources in each academic course that I teach. My students are intrigued by learning and I want to make sure that they have everything that they need.
