What I love most about my students is their genuineness because they don't pretend to have all the answers in life. They realize that they need help along the way in achieving their goals whether they involve planning for college, vocational school, or straight to the workforce.
When students enter my classroom, they begin thinking about their future!
The day-to-day tasks prepare students to meet the challenges they will face when they graduate, and also make them feel confident for what lies ahead.
Right now our classroom has books stacked around the room and are not easily accessible to students due to the water damage to the wooden bookshelves from Hurricane Michael. Luckily, we were able to salvage the books, but the shelves soaked up the water and became warped. The worst part was the mold that began to grow on the shelves which led them to being thrown out.
We are desperately trying to establish some normalcy for students while they are at school.
One way to do that is to get the classroom looking like it did before the storm. The metal bookshelves would help us get organized once again and move forward to returning to normal.
