My Students

Working in a community school in the neighborhood that I was raised in has allowed me to take full ownership of the responsibility of teaching our future leaders. The school that I teach in s a Title I school where many students receive free breakfast and lunch. This year I have the privilege of teaching a community of 1st grade students. These students come from a disadvantaged background.

Some students reside in a nearby shelter, others suffer from asthma and many have learning disabilities, however there is a very strong aspect that ties them together...they all have a zest for learning.

No matter our limited resources, our students pull together and work with what they have and the products they produce are magical.

This past school year, I have seen elaborate displays come together after students studied Ancient Egypt, where they created self portraits of themselves as ancient pharaohs. I have been whisked away to the tundra and desert after students created guide books on these natural habitats. As soon as my students walk through the door they are eager and ready to learn. It is so important to provide the tools for them to complete their best work.

My Project

Reading and math are core subject areas in many educational settings. Instead of teaching them in isolation, currently, I am focusing on meshing these two worlds together. Our first grade classroom is in dire need of a math library to help students see these concepts be brought to life on the pages of a picture book.

Before the common core standards, I told my young students that they were all college material.

These standards stress that students should be solving problems based on real life situations. The books in the requested math library speak to this standard exposing children to problems and concepts in math on a kid friendly level. With the use of the document camera, I will be giving my students even more access, as they will take ownership for learning how to use newly developed technological tools in our ever changing world.

These books will be shared first as a read aloud throughout the year. As students hear hear text, they will then be able to go on and read the books on their own, expanding on the literature through higher order thinking questions and hands on tasks. Your generous donation will allow students to have access to the resources that will set them on a path towards college.
