My Students

My students are high school students living in a rural agricultural community, where all receive free lunch. They are an ethnic/racially diverse population of students including White, Black, Hispanic, and Native American. They lack many of the experiences, opportunities, and resources available to students living in more urban areas. Some of my students have entered my classroom not able to speak English, only their native language Spanish, but somehow all students learn life skills-cooking, resume writing, interview skills, interior design, how to balance a checkbook, etc. before leaving my room.

My students have a passion for learning and a desire to learn more.

I try to assist my students by providing them with the items needed in my classroom. Most cannot afford all the supplies teachers are asking for, but by funding this project, my students will feel confident coming into my classroom knowing they will have the tools they need to be successful in my class.

My Project

The items I am requesting will help my students re-teach and reinforce what we are learning in class. The poster board will be used for making posters and making game boards to use when studying for a test.

The glue will be used when making paper mache projects and creating scaled housing projects.

The copy paper will be used to make booklets for either recipes which they have made in the kitchen lab.

Students learn in different ways. I do a lot of hands-on activities to help reinforce what we have covered in the classroom. Some items we have done before including posters, paper mache items, and other things to help remind students of the lesson.
