My Students

I have a great diversity of students in my classes. My students come from all over the world. Here are just a few examples: Republic of Congo, Burundi, Thailand, Nepal, Venezuela, Colombia, Albania, Bosnia, Iran, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Honduras.

Our school is a neighborhood school in Hartford, Connecticut.

I love my job very much and and I take it with all its blessings and challenges. Kids come to school with no English at all and leave with English speaking, reading, and writing skills.

Often times however, I find myself in situations that require my absolute and immediate problem solving. Students in my classes are not only speaking different languages, but come form different background and schooling. Some of them can write just fine, some of them don't know letters yet. These huge differences put me in a position where I am in a constant need of resources for my teaching.

My Project

Many of my new arrivals are students from Puerto Rico, affected by hurricane Maria. I need supplies to help them in their basic every day lives. Folders, binders, markers for the white board, boxes to organize their work.

My students need basic supplies for school.

Our school is one of the schools that got the most new students after Hurricane Maria. The sooner I can help organize themselves in school, the sooner they will be comfortable and ready to learn.

Some of these supplies will be used next year. I want to prepare for a new school year now so we are all set when September arrives.
