My Students

My students come from a very low-income area in Springfield, MA. Our school is a Level 3 school in need of further resources regularly. I teach an abundance of ELL students who need very hands-on language experiences. All students receive free lunch and breakfast each day. Despite many hardships, students come eager to learn and grow each day. I would like to give them the tools they need to succeed every day. With such diverse backgrounds, a classroom is a place where all of my students can feel at home.

My Project

At the beginning of the school year, our classroom needs new supplies to set the foundation for a successful school year. Students in my classroom do not have the resources to purchase their own school supplies, so I am often the one purchasing these supplies.

This project will supply my students with the notebooks, folders, and writing and coloring tools to help them succeed academically.

Additionally, there are many staples to our classroom such as whiteboard markers, tape, and scissors which our classroom needs to run smoothly. Many of the whiteboard markers will be used for small group instruction and the chart paper will help display our learning on a daily basis. With these supplies, my students will be able to learn in a variety of ways this school year!
