My Students

I teach a diverse group of students in a public high school. My students come from a variety of countries and different socioeconomic backgrounds. My students range from 9th to 12th grade and are eager to learn a new language.

Some students may be learning a language for the first time, some speak Creole because of their Haitian roots, and some speak English and Spanish and are learning French as their third language.

My students need appropriate and up-to-date resources to help them learn French and be successful in this endeavor.

My Project

Many of my students receive free and reduced lunch and often don’t have the money to buy the school supplies they need for their classes. Most days students ask for pens, pencils, folders, or notebooks because they don’t have them. Students can’t be successful without the needed supplies. Being prepared for class with these new notebooks, folders, pens, pencils, rulers, index cards, higlighters, binders and other classroom supplies also gives students from less fortunate circumstances to feel more confident and focused because it is one less worry for them to have to carry around. My students will benefit from having these required supplies to use, not only in my class but also in their other classes.
