My Students

As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school, I see that my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Every year, I have at least one student who is homeless. I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move and read, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free breakfast and lunch.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can control their experiences during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

There are some basic materials that every classroom needs. It doesn't matter what city, state or grade level, everyone needs these items.

Paper and markers are the backbone of every classroom.

We use paper to practice writing, completing the scientific method, learning math facts and printing out books for them to practice reading at home. We have lots of projects we do and we really need new markers to make them pop!

The final thing we need is a new pencil sharpener. Each year I teach my students how to use an "old fashioned" wall mounted pencil sharpener. It saves me so much time and allows them to be independent. Our current one is barely hanging on and needs to be replaced.
