My Students

I teach students at a Title I school in the Southwest, where my students are valued and celebrated in every classroom, but once they step out of the safe boundaries of the school, they are often underrepresented in society because of their demographics. All of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch, and 100% of them have great potential!

My students come to school daily, where they are fed through words and nutrients, but leave to temporary shelters due to high mobility.

My Project

Right now, I have the pleasure of teaching a combo class of kindergarteners and first graders! I have never taught a combo class and it's been a whirlwind experience every day!

I have a classroom of diverse learners from proficient readers to students who are in the process of learning to recognize and write their names!

That's why I am requesting a set of first grader news and a set of kindergarten news--to meet my current student needs and challenge them to read! With these grade-level Scholastic News, my students will get grade-level content that is nonfiction, current and is full of relevant information!
