My students live in a rural district, with many low-lying farmlands and pastures. Some are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. They face challenges most teenagers face, and oftentimes more. There are many at our school who struggle with reading, and that adds to their struggle.
They are great children, full of potential, and I am grateful to be their teacher.
I have academic students, students who excel in a trade, and students who do both. Our school is well-varied in the options it provides our students. My goal is not to push my students towards college, but to push them to their limits. I can't wait to see how high they soar!
I have a very limited number of basic calculators in my classroom, and the majority of my students do not own one. I would like to add these 20 calculators to my classroom so that each student can use one as needed. We are about to begin our unit on moles, and then balancing equations; because my students struggle with math the calculators will be a huge help.
A calculator for each student will maximize their time spent in class, as they will not have to wait around waiting to share calculators.
The pencil sharpener will replace the third one that's broken this year. Most students prefer to do their calculations in pencil, so having a working pencil sharpener helps keep them prepared.
