My Students

“If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.” ~ John Dewey.

My students are energetic and fun inner-city high school students.

My students have a range of disabilities including learning disabilities, visual impairments, autism, and intellectual disabilities. Many of them are also English Language Learners. My students show greater enthusiasm when learning is interactive, interesting, and collaborative. They are motivated when they have access to the basic supplies and resources that they need to complete learning activities.

My school is located in a large urban city. Of the 3,100 students 94% are low-income, 10% of the students have disabilities, and 8% are English Language Learners. A majority of my students are low-income, have disabilities, and are English Language Learners. I teach my students not to let their personal home situations, English Language Learners status, or disabilities hinder their academic or social-emotional growth.

My Project

All students have the right to have access appropriate instructional materials. This project will provide my students with access to basic supplies so that they can work collaboratively and complete assignments. Having dry erase boards, pencils, colored paper, etc. provides my students with opportunities to complete interactive and visually appealing learning activities.

When students have new supplies, they feel more confident, motivated, and ready to participate in educational activities.

My students are extremely deserving. They often can't afford to replace worn school supplies such as binders and markers, so this project will allow them to continue to have the materials they need for the second semester.
