My Students

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." Students need to be involved in their learning so that they can take ownership of what they are doing. Students need to get their hands "dirty" by using them to research, create, and make learning meaningful. I will teach about 20 eager, energetic third-grade students in my classroom this year. We are a CEP, Title I school which means 100% of our students participate in the free lunch program. All of our students are eager to learn and need experiences that they do not get at home. Many of our children come from single-parent homes.

Our school is in close proximity to a major military base; we serve many students who come from active and retired military families.

We want parents to associate school with love, learning, and caring. We would like to change parents' points-of-view from the negative experiences they may have had as children to be able to see the positive experiences we provide their children through rich literature and unforgettable activities.

My Project

This past week the families our school serves have had to endure many uncertainties with Hurricane Florence's arrival and aftermath. Many of our families have have to evacuate their homes indefinitely, due to the Cape Fear River cresting and flooding near their homes. Last week, I noticed Hurricane Florence had brought about a level of anxiety to my students because of what they experienced two years ago with Matthew. I am saddened that their fears have come true.

I couldn't imagine being given hours notice to leave my home, living in a shelter, hotel, or another families home for an undetermined period of time, then not knowing what I would be going home to when it was all over; this is currently the reality for my students and their families.

One family, in particular, has contacted me in need of items for their little girl they lost after evacuating. They have notified me my student has lost many items due to the damage/flooding they sustained during Hurricane Florence. When I asked mom what type of things my student needed she asked for shoes, shirts, shorts, and uniform clothing among other things. This student holds a special place in my heart. She is a beautiful, young girl who always means well. She loves helping anyway she can and is a true child at heart. Please help me make this students transition moving back into her home as easy as possible.
