My Students

Working for a Title 1 district, I have observed how hard my students

have worked to overcome a lot of hardships throughout the years - something that became increasingly more challenging after Hurricane Harvey.

Their persistence in the classroom and their efforts to do their best when the odds are very much against them is truly inspiring. I owe it to them to provide the best possible learning environment to help provide a successful future.

From day one of our school year, my students will work hard to prepare for the STAAR test. As their teacher, I am working to build an environment that suits their needs and builds their focus on education. I am driven to teach them the importance of a solid education as a fundamental tool for a brighter future. These students will be taught to focus on how their skills will help them be successful in life - not solely the day of their big test.

My Project

Every year, school supply lists go home with all of the necessary materials needed for the classroom. Every year, very few of the students come fully prepared for the school year which leaves us, the teachers, to make up the deficit. A large number of my students are affected by living in a low-income household and many are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. I have tried to provide what I can to these students, but it is not nearly enough for a grade of 75 students.

My students are engaged learners who depend on colorful and creative methods of teaching.

We make foldables, create partner games, as well as many other colorful activities. In order to keep and enhance their learning environment, they need enough markers, dry erase boards, dry erase markers, glue, and pencils to keep everyone working and active at the same time. I also need more laminate in order to keep our activities preserved.

Please support my classroom and let's keep it colorful! Thanks!
