My students are excited, eager learners who are ready to see what school has to offer them. Many of them have no school experience and education has not been important in their home.
We live in a small, rural town with a high poverty rate.
Many of my students receive backpack food for the weekend. My kids can rarely afford to visit places outside of our small community. My students have limited experience in the world. It is up to me to create world experiences in our classroom. I need to help close the gap for these special kids I teach and it is sometimes difficult with limited resources.
My students need to learn about the environment they live in and the environments around the world. Materials like the talking globe and science viewers will help my kids understand the world around them.
Our community is in a very rural area and most of my students rarely leave their home.
I need to bring the rest of the world to them so that they will have an understanding that places around the world are different than the place they live.
I also want them to learn a love for the earth and all the places and beauty in it so that they will want to take good care of it.
