My Students

My students are at that age that they are so full of questions about life. They wonder about the world around them, how things works, why are things so unfair for some. This age can be a challenge but they want to learn and they need that person to show them the way. Many of my students come from struggling single parent homes.

I believe all students can learn if they are given the chance and it is my job is to ensure they all have an equal opportunity in life.

My goal for my students is to receive the best education I can give them in the upcoming school year.

My Project

Students love expressing their self in the class room and one way they can do that is by writing.

Writing as a great way of getting that quiet, shy students voice heard.

I have many students in my ELA class with the goal of being a writer when they grow up. At this young age I want to support their dreams and desires of the future. Many of my students are in need of the basic needs for being able to write and that includes the simple basic items of pencils and composition books. Student will be working on journaling, free write, story writing everyday with these added supplies.
