My Students

I teach in a low income, high poverty area. Our school is located in an urban neighborhood in New York City, 85% of our students are eligible for free and reduced-price lunches. The students are served breakfast and lunch. Our students rely on the school meals for their daily source of nutrition. The school services many homeless students. These students live in transient shelters. The homeless students have poor nutrition, resulting in poor health and are frequently absent. We have several special needs students in our class receiving special services.

There are 18 students, of different ethnic backgrounds and for many, this is their first school experience.

We have 8 students who do not speak English. The students speak Creole, Arabic, and Spanish. The students are African American, Haitian, Latino and Arabic. For the majority of the students, this is their first educational experience. Many of them have not heard stories being read aloud and do not have educational toys at home. The students come to my classroom to a place where they are comfortable, socially and emotionally.

My Project

My students are just beginning their journey with literacy. They need an organized library in the classroom. We need a wooden double sided book shelf to display the books from our unit of study.

The book shelf will make a different in my students learning by creating an organized learning environment.

All of these items will be housed in our classroom library area. The goal of this project is to provide my students with a desire to browse & pick out a good book, read, and relax.

It is my hope with the new library furniture students will want to spend more time in the library and ultimately spark and foster a love for reading. Students will love this new space and surely it will cultivate a love for relaxing and reading.
