My Students

My students are tenacious go-getters. They are eager to get involved in the school community, collaborate with each other, and immerse themselves in academic programs outside of school hours.

We are a small inner city school with a diverse student population with diverse needs.

Many of my students count on the support they receive in the school building in order to get their work done, build study skills, and excel in learning. The support and structure provided at school allow them to make goals, strive to reach them, and mold their futures.

My Project

My students are working on organization skills in order to have an easier time learning. It is difficult and frustrating for students when they are unable to locate their work during class or have to interrupt instruction to look for an important handout. With storage boxes, staplers, and cleaning supplies, we can ensure that everything has a place in the classroom and that our space is clean. I would like my students to have organized binders and backpacks, which means this structure needs to be modeled within our classroom. We can create a system so that students can easily access previous handouts or retrieve old work if they were absent. Storage boxes will allow them to have a designated location for supplies such as pencils, markers, and rulers. Other storage boxes can house submitted homework, so that it can be quickly returned after being graded and for storing reference sheets of important concepts. We will use the staplers so that if students have multiple pages of work, they can bind those pages together to avoid them getting separated later. We can keep hand sanitizer and tissues on hand so that students do not need to leave the room for these resources.
