My students are the light of my life. They come to my classroom with a number of social issues and, together, we turn a group of inner city kids into motivated and excited learners. The school is considered to be in a high poverty location, but all of us understand that we must forge ahead because a good education is imperative for their future success.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela
From day one, my students are aware of my perspective on education. Together we make goals that help each one of them strive to use their education as a weapon to guide in their success. They understand this quote from Nelson Mandela and explain how it applies to their own lives and learning. At the end of the year, I always reflect on how well they are doing with their "powerful weapon."
Dry erase markers, boards, and cleaner are all necessary tools in today's classrooms. I am concerned about how much paper we use in education and these materials will allow me to teach and for students to learn without using consumables that will ultimately be thrown away.
My students use dry erase markers and boards to practice math standards, spell words, revise and edit sentences, and share their reading comprehension stills with the class.
These materials are a necessary and extremely useful tool in a classroom. As you can see, these materials will make a world of difference in my classroom and the environment!
