I am a second grade teacher at a Title I, Expanded Learning Time School. We have a longer day which offers various enrichment activities as well as the time to teach to our students' needs. Over the past couple years I have noticed many of my students have had a hard time focusing on tasks due to various learning styles and needs, including ADHD and trauma. Our students come to our school from various walks of life, some from our town, some coming for a short period of time and some living in a long-term homeless shelter. It is clear in our building, that once you are a part of our community, you are a part of our lives forever.
At my school, we are a family, and the students are the heart of our family.
Teachers and families work together to provide the best experiences we can to our students. We work hard to make our classrooms and hallways a safe place where students can thrive in a comfortable environment made especially for them.
As we have all seen over the past couple months, our learning environments can change in an instant. It is important for all students to have the supplies they need to experience school, whether the learning is taking place at school or at home.
Help give my students basic, individual, supplies like crayons, markers, glue sticks, paper, pencils and erasers.
These supplies will travel if necessary from school to home to support remote learning. My goal is to keep my students healthy (with supplies they don’t have to share) and happy because they have what they need to succeed in second grade!
