My students have so much potential! I know that if they were all given the structure, resources, and experiences needed for success, all of them will be successful. The majority of my students come from low SES households and many of them are new to the country. They have passions and dreams that they all want to reach and achieve. They are driven and hardworking and most of them take part in their community, whether it's through school, church, or their neighborhood.
I believe that if we can provide them with the correct tools and experiences we can change their world.
They will go into the world ready to achieve and live those dreams and contribute back to their communities.
Engagement in a classroom is what makes learning successful, and your donation will help this happen. All the materials I've selected are to help students engage and learn at their own pace and preference. For instance, the class set of head phones are for watching and listening to videos that I've created for writing and practicing math. The printer is for printing out assignments that students need, if they prefer doing the work on paper. The white board markers are just another resource I use with my white boards for practicing math problems or just another way for students to show their work and be engaged. I also make my white boards by laminating card stock paper. The list goes on.
Learning happens when students have the necessary tools and resources to engage them in the task at hand.
We are in the 21st century, everything is online and technology based. My students need to be able to use graphing calculators and different technologies online to help them learn the big picture and not make mistakes on small technical things. The batteries are to ensure my class set of calculators are always working and ready to be used. All the materials from paper, pencils, and everyday class supplies are to help my students be ready to engage and make learning happen.
