My Students

We are a second grade class in a predominantly low-income neighborhood in Philadelphia. Ten years ago, Mastery turned this inner city, neighborhood school into a charter school aimed toward student success with the ultimate goal of every student going to college!

My students are super smart, super hard working, and super silly!

They genuinely love school and there is never a dull moment with them.

My Project

Due to Covid-19, my district is currently working from home while supporting students' academic practices at home. As a teacher at an inner-city Title I school, many students are at home without any supplies to support their learning.

Materials such as dry-erase sleeves and markers will help students follow along with my video lessons and live video chats.

They will be able to erase as needed and reuse the materials for each lesson!

Having a notebook and pencil will allow students to write down Guided Reading questions, and have their answers ready for our small group Zoom meetings! They can also practice handwriting and spelling skills as well.
