My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My campus has more than 80% of our student population is on free and reduce lunch. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with a creative and meaningful learning experience. They deserve every opportunities that is available to them.

My students are bilingual and many of them are first generation elementary students.

A lot of the families were impacted by Harvey, many losing everything, having to start all over again. Despite all the challenges they face they are always eager to learn new information. "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do".

My Project

The students in my campus are not used to new and colorful environment as they come from low social economic. The new furniture will excite and motivate the students into coming to school prepared to build the foundation of their future.

The bean bags will encourage the future leaders to seek knowledge.

The new tables will excite and create a sense of eagerness that originally is not there. The couches will drive the students to not only want to read at school but also in the comfort of their home. Some students may not be able to go home and read a book due to any issues that may occur. The new furniture will motivate the students to find pleasure in learning.
