My Students

My students come from a low-income, high-poverty district with a high percentage of English Language Learners (ELLs). The school is considered underperforming by the state, and the staff and administration are working diligently to turn the school around. This includes an extended school day with intensive coursework and testing for students. It is very important to me that my students' daily experience be engaging, positive, and productive.

My students are from diverse backgrounds and suffer traumatic situations, I'm trying to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where they feel safe, secure, and loved.

My Project

I would like to expose my students to current events from around the world. Scholastic News and Super Science magazines are highly engaging, fun for students to read, and educational. They are a perfect fit to teach kids about the world around us. Most magazines, and newspapers, are written with an older audience in mind.

Without this exposure I don’t believe my students would have the ability to read about world events at a fourth grade reading level.

The students that had the opportunity to have a subscription to Super Science and Scholastic News magazine actually cheer when they see the school secretary deliver them to our classroom. With your help I would be able to get a class subscription for my incoming students this coming September.
