My Students

I teach in an urban low income school district in Pennsylvania. I am a full time supplemental self contained learning support teacher. I have ten students.

One of my main goals this year is to create a classroom family in which my students feel they belong.

My students should be able to enter the school doors each day knowing that their only stress is to do their best. They will be fed, loved, and encouraged.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds. The majority of my students come from single parent homes or are being raised by a relative of some sort. They all qualify for free lunch, and many receive food substitutions as a part of our school's backpack program. Regardless of their home lives, these students enter my room each morning with a bright smile. Their ability to push past daily stress from the outside world is truly amazing.

My Project

I am requesting an easel and materials for my classroom to give my students an opportunity to increase visual learning.

Having a space in our classroom where important skills and ideas will be displayed will help them to learn and give them the visual stimulation they need.

The presence of an easel will also give us a place where students can work on skills, present ideas, and display work. It will also provide us a place to come together as a classroom community to engage in learning.

Overall, it would be a wonderful addition to our classroom, meeting so many needs.
