My Students

I teach at a Title I school where the majority of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and go home to non-English speaking families. Some of our students are the only English speaking people in their families.

Our school has students who are homeless.

We have many students who live at the shelter for abused and battered women and children. Many other students are living with two or three families in small apartments because they are homeless.

I make it my goal every year to supply my students with the supplies they need and hands-on experiences that they wouldn't get elsewhere. It’s very easy to tie a project or activity into the standards the kids are supposed to be learning.

By getting our hands on what we’re learning, we learn even more. I love it when my students finish an activity and say what a great time they had and how much they learned. Our students are very bright and deserve every opportunity they get.

My Project

My goal is to help my students keep their laptops organized. With this five slot organizer, each student will have a designated place to put their laptop when it's not being used to charge it. This will help our classroom be much more organized.

My students love their wireless mice, but they need batteries to keep them running.

The AAA batteries will keep our mice up and running so we can use them all the time.

Having our laptops organized and our wireless mice continually working will help our classroom run efficiently.
