My Students

I teach at an inner city school. There are over 800 students in my elementary school. Most of the students come from a low socioeconomic status background. Eighty percent of my class speaks a language other than English (ELL). Many of the students have suffered some type of trauma in their lives. The students all receive free breakfast and lunch. A food pantry is run out of our school, with an average of 60 backpacks sent home a week. With all that said, most of the students come to school each day ready and eager to learn; to do what they can to change and make their lives, and futures, better.

My Project

We need these two shelves for our classroom to organize our materials. Through the generous donations that have been made for our room already, we have a great variety of math and science games, kits, and resources. We need a place to store all these things. This heavy bin shelf and bins would be perfect for storing these materials. It will also make it easier for the students to see what is available and to pick the game or manipulative they would like to use.

It is never too early to teach students responsibility.

Each student has a binder that they do their work in. The binder storage shelf would provide a great place for them to easily store and retrieve their binder when it is work time.

The giant timer will provide a visual to the students as to how much time is left to complete their work. This will help the students to learn to manage their time well while working. For students who have difficulty transitioning from one thing to the next, this timer will help ease their anxiety, as they will see the time coming to switch to the next activity.
