My Students

Our Title I school has around 900 students. I teach English Language Learners from low-income families. They come from diverse backgrounds. A large portion of my school's population comes from poverty-stricken homes. They are kids with hopes and dreams of making their lives better and bettering the future of their families.

All of our students receive free lunch, and most speak another language at home.

Despite their challenges, they make remarkable progress throughout the year. These students will one day change the world, and I cannot wait to see how far they go!

My Project

I believe it is extremely important to educate our students about Financial Literacy. I would love to add a variety of fun books and games that will allow my students to practice as well as gain vital financial literacy skills.

This project will ignite my classroom's financial literacy and inspire their love of learning, all without them know it!

The Cash Register and pretend grocery items will encourage children to learn basic math and essential money skills, while enhancing imaginative play. The play money is an excellent tool for teaching kids to sort and count money, perfect for use with kid's cash register and for money math games. The books will allow the students to practice the value of coins and paper money. These resources will provide a valuable resource for my students.
