My Students

My students are so amazing! Most of these sweet children are fighting some sort of battle at home, but they come to school every day with smiles on their faces and a willingness to do better. Our classroom serves students with various types of learning and emotional disabilities, which makes the resources that we have all the more precious. Most of the children in our class are behind in language skills, reading, and math, so we are working hard each day to close those gaps.

Our school is Title I, comprised of mostly at-risk students, with 100% receiving free breakfast and lunch.

Many of them live in poverty or just above the poverty level. They come from diverse backgrounds and family situations, some with very inconsistent living arrangements. Many have experienced trauma and are trying to cope with those resulting emotions along with the other typical emotions that belong to young children. It is my hope that each of these students will be able to choose a different life for themselves as adults, because they are receiving a quality education and learning self-worth that will inspire healthy choices.

My Project

Life Cycle Readers will help my students to use the vocabulary correctly and to better understand what each new term means in context. It will also allow the students to see each phase of an organism's life cycle up close so that they better understand that each phase is an actual step in the organism's growth process.

The plant and butterfly life cycle labs will be an exciting and hands-on opportunity to watch the life cycle unfold in front of their very own eyes.

By being able to watch the life cycle occur in real-time, the students will have a more concrete understanding of the concept.
