My Students

My school is a Title I school where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. My class consists of low-income students. Some of the students in my class come from Spanish, Chinese, British and African cultures. What makes my students special is they come to school with an eager attitude to learn. Some days are not as good as others, but I can say at the end of the day that the students are glad they came to school. Our teachers work hard in order to give students what they need in a timely manner.

My Project

We need markers to complete classwork, homework and class projects. Everyone loves a good Sharpie marker project because they are bright and fun to use but with a class full kids using about forty of them they dry up fast! I don't like buying cheap markers because hey don't last and they are a waste of money.

My vision for the use of these materials is to continue to work on projects in all subjects using the markers to get it done.

The highlighters are great for daily use with worksheets and information you need to stand out. The markers are also used to label student materials and their work.
