My Students

As a teacher in a low-income school district, I see my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative, engaging and meaningful learning experiences this school year.

My students work very hard each day.

There are certain classroom supplies needed to make sure all learners succeed. Basic classroom supplies are needed to have a productive school day.

My Project

Our class needs some basic supplies to meet our daily goals. Every learner has different needs and various supplies are needed to meet the needs of every learner. We are constantly using chart paper for the students to solve a variety of problems in every subject area. Copy paper is needed to create projects, learning centers, take home and classroom projects. Staplers and paper clips are needed to help the teacher and the students keep their work neat and organized. Although we learn from our mistakes, white out is needed when we want to make a correction to our final pieces.
