My Students

I teach at a Title I high school in a priority district. All of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My classroom is a mixed grade-level, as well as a mixed academic-level classroom.

Therefore, my class includes ELL's, special education students, a large range of academic abilities, and many students who come from a struggling economic environment. These struggles have led to an increase in failing classes and students not attending school. And, often when these students do attend, they are extremely disengaged.

Our students, like all students, deserve learning opportunities and access to information to help them become successful, contributing members of society. Our students are full of passion, energy, and excitement. They take pride in their successes, especially when overcoming obstacles. They always are very excited to try new technology but have extremely limited means to do so since most live around the poverty line. And, I take pride and joy in the challenge of finding ways to meet their personal needs to help them achieve.

My Project

I will use this book binding machine to bind copies of all sorts of things that we use in class to aid student learning; for example, our photography manual. A copy that is bound will last and stay in page order and students will be able to use it at school and at home. Many of my students do not have internet access at home. Lack of internet stops them from doing further in depth reading of many of our photo topics; but now I can make copies that stay organized and protected because they are bound with a protective cover.
