My Students

Teaching in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide a learning environment where they can succeed and overcome these challenges.

My students are astute, eager and very energetic.

They like to move, they love to read and adore lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and all receive free lunch and breakfast each day at school. Although they endure many setbacks, my students still have the potential to accomplish anything they set their minds to. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

One area my students excel in is technology. They love working on the computer creating projects that involve word processing and graphics. Having a printer in the classroom will allow my students the chance to print out their hard work. Now, they can show off their creations to family members who otherwise would have never seen it.

It is important to give students the opportunity to achieve in a technological world.

A printer connects the web, to the physical world. While projects can easily be stored on the computer, I find it more meaningful for the students to be able to hold their creation in their hands. The printer will provide that physicality for the students and boost confidence for future projects.
