My Students

My students are hardworking, determined, ambitious and dedicated to learning despite coming from an economically disadvantaged background. All of my students are English Language Learners, which means English is not their first language and is not usually spoken at home. Despite these challenges, my students come to school every day enthusiastic and ready to learn. They enter the building with smiles on their faces and are ready to take on the day. They enjoy learning and working with their peers. My students want to be successful and achieve their goals.

My Project

My students are a sweet, determined, and hardworking bunch. Research shows that ELLs respond well to visual cues, vibrant color, and color coded materials. I would like to be able to provide more activities for my students that have visuals for them. It would be very helpful to have a color printer to print centers, books, resources, and other visual materials for my students. The printer and ink would allow us to print vibrant books and resources that will enhance their learning. This will ensure that I am able to provide engaging and exciting learning activities for my sweet students.
