I am a resource teacher at two elementary schools. I help students who are behind in their classes to learn at their own pace to become the best they can be. I am also a first year teacher with very limited supplies. My students need fun, exciting, and educational ways to learn. Because they are behind in their grades I want to help them learn many different ways to achieve their goals.
They are bright children who just need things taken a little slower and more in-depth.
Many of my older students 4th-6th grades are on a first grade learning level. My personal goal is to see them achieve at least one grade level jump by the end of the year.
My personal favorite thing about teaching is watching the kids learn and doing things they thought were not possible.
The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a home. In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! Money is something everyone uses daily. Yes it is becoming more obsolete, but letting my students use money in class assignments and as a reward program will help them in their lives. The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of and competency in math and money calculation which will help them not only in school but in real life situations also. I cannot state how much your support means to me and my students. Thank you!
