My Students

"The whole world opened to me when I learned to read,” Mary Mcleod Bethune. Opening the doors through reading is my goal for my students.

Students at my school are so eager to learn and absorb knowledge on a daily basis.

My goal as a 4th grade teacher is to see plenty of growth in my students and teach them to love learning. My school is located in a small rural farming area where many of the parents of our students are in the fields picking food all day. We are also a Title I and Renaissance school, meaning over 90% of our children get free lunches. Most of them have so many needs, live in poverty, and come to school with very little. Many of my students lack English fluency and confidence in mastering the English language because they come from Spanish-speaking homes. The parents at this school have a difficult time affording many necessities, let alone books and reading resources. So many of the items that are in the classroom come from our own pockets. I would like to help my students learn and become learners for life.

My Project

In our school we are always in need of headphones. Many times headphones are left for last when it comes to the budget. Having headphones that have split wires and foam coming off the earpieces can prevent my students from completing their tasks on computers. Therefore, I'm asking for headphones to make sure that my students have nice, new, comfortable headphones that work for this school year.

My students will use these headphones when using computers/laptops to complete math and reading tasks.

Having these headphones will be a blessing to our class as headphones are not always available at our school when one of them breaks. These headphones will help improve my classroom environment and my student's work by helping them improve their focus on the task they are working on.
