When I became a teacher at this school I was hit by the amount of struggles my kids deal with. Not only do I have students with educational difficulties, but with home difficulties as well. So many of our parents are struggling to make ends meet. Some students benefit from our free or reduced price lunch program and other help from programs for needy families.
I adore my students.
Without a doubt, I want to give them the best education possible. They deserve that. I hope through Donorschoose I can give them that possibility.
Reading textbooks are so much more fun when you can listen to others read them. Watching videos assists students in learning more clearly about various times in history. I want to give all students the opportunity to do these one-on-one in class when we are learning about various civilizations.
My students need earbuds so they are able to listen and learn on a more individual basis.
So many students have different needs and interests when it comes to history. I want them to become actively interested in the civilization and the learning but be able to do some of the work on their own, instead of whole class.
