My Students

My students are really lovely kids; hardworking, funny, and bright. They live in a very disadvantaged community, where resources are scarce and teachers have to work really hard to acquire supplies and plan enrichment activities.

My students do their best to comply with all that we require of them, which means a large amount of test prep and a small amount of recess.

As their teacher, I owe it to them to try to bring fun and creativity to our school year to the best of my abilities.

Many of my students have special needs, ranging from learning differences to emotional disturbances, and it's important to me to make learning fun and enjoyable for them.

My Project

My knitting club is off to a great start, and the students are really enjoying working with yarn so far! But they are quickly going through my yarn supply like fast little knitters, so I need to replenish. I also want an additional set of looms so that at the end of the club, I can let students keep their looms for future knitting adventures. I need the large plastic storage bins to store all these supplies in a neat, organized, and accessible way for me and the students to use.

My students love knitting, and it helps them learn focus and attention to detail!
