My Students

My students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom due to the low economic status of their families. Despite the many challenges they face, I passionately provide my students with creative, meaningful, and differentiated learning experiences within the classroom. Many of my students are being raised in single parent households and all students receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

Despite the challenges they may face, my students come to school daily eager to learn.

My goal is to prepare my students for their educational future ahead. As a Kindergarten teacher, it is my job to build their literacy foundation for future success. My students are living in a world of technology. Unfortunately, the school that my students attend has very limited technology due to the age of the building and lack of funding.

My Project

My students need a listening center along with headphones and a CD player. These resources will help them access more books at higher levels than they normally would be able to on their own.

Listening to rich texts will provide them with vocabulary, background knowledge, and the ability to listen to stories for pleasure.

The listening center will help students who struggle with reading comprehension improve their skills in a fun and engaging way! Our classrooms are not yet at the level technologically to meet their needs as learners. This grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more.
