My Students

I teach in a large urban public school in Bronx, N.Y. The majority of our students are immigrants from very diverse backgrounds, including the Dominican Republic, Bangladesh, West African and Latin America. More than half of our student population is learning English as a new language.

While culturally our students are diverse, economically 94% of our students come from low-income households and qualify to receive reduced price or free breakfast and lunch.

Recently the city’s initiative, “Breakfast in the Classroom” has been a very successful program in our school, which ensured that our students received the nutrients and energy needed to begin their academic day.

Despite the day-to-day obstacles, our students work very hard to get into well-reputed high schools within the City. In the recent years, a few of our alumni got acceptance to the city’s prestigious specialized high schools. Our students need your support to fund resources to further their education.

My Project

I have an amazing group of students. They love to read and write and they strive to do better every day. To be successful in their quest for quality education, my students need adequate supplies.

We need the looseleaf, pens, pencils, and erasers to write every day.

In addition, the Cornell notetaking template looseleaf will help my students to take organized notes, which will help them to study smarter. We need the color pens to do annotations,in the past, color coding annotations helped them to stay organized and study smarter as well. Finally, we need the sharpener, which is very crucial in preparing for writing!
