My Students

I teach second grade in a school that is approximately sixty-five percent Title I. Over half of our students come from economically disadvantaged homes. We have a diverse group of students, including African Americans, Asians, and Hispanic students. My students come with a variety of needs and reading levels.

These children come to school each day ready to learn and with smiles of their faces.

They are excited to read and love having the chance to choose books in our classroom library. They love new books, any opportunity to read, and to share their thoughts.

My Project

Having storage for their take home belongings ensures notes and folders go home daily, as well as any classwork. The wooden mailboxes will last for classes to come, and allow us an easy procedure during the day at dismissal for where our things to take home go.

Mail is Here will allow my students a place in the room that is theirs to store their items that need to go home.

The mailboxes will be used to store their daily take home folders, any work that needs to go home, class newsletters, school newsletters, notes about upcoming events, and more!
