My Students

As I glance around my classroom and observe my students that's been affected by Hurricane Harvey, I find many ways that describe them as MY SPECIAL STUDENTS. The students that I teach are students that live in a disadvantaged neighborhood which is associated with less instrumental support, particularly financial assistance, from family and friends. Therefore the school they attend becomes a safe haven with a bond of safety nets from teachers, administrators, and other school personnel.

The stability of the school gives students a sense of trust, love, compassion, and comfort which most of the time is something they lack in their home life.

Several of my students take on the role or responsibility of a taking care of their younger siblings. They have inherited adult responsibilities such as ensuring that their siblings wake up on time for school, getting them dressed, helping with homework, and ensuring they make it to school in time for breakfast. As I take an ocular view of their situation, it saddens my heart, but I begin to smile when I see them smile and take care of their siblings with little to no help even though the odds are stacked against them.

My Project

In today's society, the implementation of technology creates a unique way for students to learn and remain engaged and develop a love of reading. With tablets, students will be able to participate in whole group technology lessons, move away from the traditional pencil and paper, and increase their learning level of engagement. By integrating technology into the classroom, students will utilize text to speech and students will be able to hear it and read aloud at the same time. Learning will be at their fingertips, and it will allow them to explore reading skills through technology. This will provide a different way of learning.
