My Students

Imagine you are seven years old. You move to a new country, and one morning you walk into a new classroom. You may not have ever had any formal education before. You may have never read or written, and you have this smiling teacher talking to you in a language you don't understand. These are the students I teach every day.

My second grade special education classroom is in a lovely elementary school that sits surrounded by public housing projects in the poorest neighborhood in a poor city.

Nestled among refugee and immigrant students from all over the world are students that were born and raised in the United States but are growing up in poverty. Many are victims of abuse and neglect. Many bounce from foster home to foster home. Many students are homeless and move from shelter to shelter. All the while, they do their best to come to school every day and learn.

Even through these dire conditions, stars still shine, and these children succeed against all odds.

My Project

Our classroom needs a new rolling whiteboard/flip chart easel. The one we currently have is broken, so it falls over very easily and is becoming a dangerous hazard in the room. This is a tool that we use every day. We use it to make anchor charts together that help us contribute to our learning. We hang the anchor charts on the walls when we're done so we can refer to them whenever we need support. We like to think of them as other teachers in the room!

Please help us get a new easel so no one will get hurt!
