My Students

My classroom is as diverse as it gets and I love it! The students I serve are from so many distant places such as Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Mexico, India, Iraq, and America. I feel like this year I have learned a lot about their cultures and their specific needs. This has allowed me to grow both professionally and as a person.

Students have also learned a lot from each other, primarily to respect and accept each other's differences.

This is something very needed in our society and of course, America.

My Project

My request is basically two drum cartridges for my printer so that I can continue to print and differentiate my students’ work. My instruction is differentiated for my students, whether, it is math, reading, or social studies. Students are tested based on certain skills that have been taught, then they are grouped accordingly, and instruction is delivered in such a way that they can continue to make progress in their learning.

Progress is monitored through work that has been tailored to meet the needs of that specific student.

This is made possible by the work I create for them. However, the drum for my printer needs replacement and I am requesting your help in obtaining new ones. I thank you in advance for reading my request and investing in my students' education.
