Ms. Wood from Los Angeles CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a culturally diverse library and a neutral-themed classroom for a safe and calm learning environment that's safe and accepting. I want to make our classroom a community full of encouragement and recognition.
My school is a STEAM Academy in a South Los Angeles neighborhood near Watts. 96% percent of our students come from low-income households and we have a high percentage of English Learners.
Although I haven't met my students yet, I'm very excited to get this school year off to a wonderful start, I will be teaching a 4th Grade Magnet class and plan to build a strong community with my students.
I can't wait to get my first year started!
As a first year teacher in an under-served area, I want to do my best to provide my students with a classroom library that is culturally diverse and relevant to student interest. By providing my students with literature that they can relate to, I will be building connections with them and sparking a greater interest in their learning about themselves and about other cultures.
I also want to create a classroom environment that gives students access to learning, while also creating a motivational sense of community that allows for students to be recognized and accepted as an individual.
By keeping only neutral colors in my room and fostering a motivating culture, I can encourage a growth mindset and a safe place for students to take risks with their learning.
