My Students

I am starting my first year as a 6th grade ELAR teacher, at a new school, in a new district. I am SO EXCITED!! We are a Title I school with a very high percentage of socioeconomically disadvantaged students/families. I have not met my students yet but I know I will have students from all different backgrounds. It is likely I will have students from the girls' home, in our neihhborhood, as well. We are pretty close to the downtown area, but surrounded by a variety of poverty levels. Our school is THE OLDEST education building in our district (and unfortunately it shows in some areas.) I believe my students are going to be ready to not only learn, but secretly (at first) ready to receive the love, kindness and caring that they may not have anywhere else.

My Project

I believe that the flexible seating options will help my students who have trouble focusing, stay more focused. I feel as though they won't need to be getting up and moving around so much, distracting themselves and others during the process. I also believe that they will generally feel more comfortable versus sitting in a hard plastic chair for hours.

I understand that the toiletries may not be a direct component of active learning, however, I know that my sixth graders will be going through lots of changes and may not have someone in their life who can or will provide the necessities for them.

I want my students to feel safe with me, have no doubt that I care about them deeply and I want them to know that they are not alone. (I am also working on a food pantry for them, in my room!)
