My Students

As a first-year teacher in a low-income school district, my students are faced with several challenges both at school and at home. Although the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep my lessons engaging and provide my students with creative and interactive learning experiences. Here at my campus, I service a population of all sorts including bilingual, SPED, general education, and ESL as a second grade teacher. Due to Hurricane Harvey, many of my students lost more than the material things they lost their homes, which caused a distraction to a tremendous number of my students from their learning with that being said they are still excited and eager to grow academically to reach their educational goals.

In order to help achieve these goals, I want to create an environment where they receive the one on one attention they require to thrive as students.

My team and I are doing our best to create lessons to keep our students engaged while learning math. Here at my campus, we have a system approaching, met, or mastered the skills and many of my students are approaching. Many of them are approaching which means they require more individualized instruction.

My Project

The homework helper pack will help my students become just as successful at home just like in the classroom. Many of my students do not come to school fully prepared for the day and not having the correct supplies my students already feel defeated. The homework helper pack will give my students the opportunity to have the supplies needed for home assignments to already be home without having the worry that they do not have the scissors or glue for the cut and paste assignment. The homework helper pack will allow my students to keep those supplies at home and use their supplies at school, instead of having the responsibility to take the supplies to and from school. I want to give my students equal and fair opportunity to be successful and I think the homework helper pack will help give my students that opportunity.
