My Students

I have a class of twenty-five amazing, caring and independent students. Living in a low-income community, my students are faced with many challenges both inside and outside the classroom. Although my students face these challenges everyday, I try to keep things positive and optimistic by providing fun and interactive lessons for my students.

My students inspire me everyday to be a better teacher so that I can provide them with a loving and supportive classroom.

My students love to dance, read, draw, and even sing. Many of my students are being raised in single-parent households or are in foster care placements. They are not raised in typical situations but this does not keep them from coming to school everyday with smiles on their faces. I may not be able to control their home lives, but I can control their experiences during the school day.

My Project

In third grade, we have a lot of assessments and assignments to focus on. With these materials, we will be able to focus and not be distracted by others around us. Sometimes when we are working, things easily distract us and we lose focus. Using these headphones and privacy booths will help us focus and concentrate on the assignment ahead of us.

Having these headphones and privacy booths in our classroom will help us do our very best on every assignment and assessment.

After awhile using these tools, we hope to grow our ability to focus so that one day, we can concentrate without these tools.
