My Students

My students attend an inner-city charter school. The students in our school come from many diverse backgrounds. Most of them speak a language other than English as their first language. My students also conquer life while having special needs.

Our schools create an achievement-focused school culture by sweating the small stuff while fostering meaningful, personalized relationships between students and adults.

They want to soak up knowledge and new experiences. By the time they walk into school, many of them have overcome the struggles of poverty, broken homes, and homelessness. Our charter school takes PRIDE in both academic and social-emotional growth. The journey begins here.

My Project

We need new materials to help us reach our goals. The students in my groups will use these things to improve skills each day,

Puzzles and interactive materials make learning fun!

My students are very sensory so the weighted dog can be placed on their laps to keep them focused during group times or calm them down at other times. The sequence puzzles will improve hand-eye coordination as well as sequencing skills. The write on/wipe off handwriting books will allow many students to use them or individual students to have extra practice. Many students are working on counting skills, and the magnetic maze puzzle will make practice fun as they improve fine motor skills.
