My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and are all being thrown together to learn from each other. Students in my school and classroom come from a variety of homes including single parents, both parents working, stay at home mom or dad, other family members living in their home, homeless/living in hotels or with family, etc. We have a growing population of English as a Second Language (ESL) students which impact our classrooms.

We are a cohort for Personalized Learning in our district, so we are making strides toward teaching these students with huge differences.

Personalized Learning allows students to work on standards to meet their needs and goals. We are also a Creative Arts Magnet School, so we are not only making strides toward teaching students on a personal level, but we are now adding the arts to our curriculum.

All students are learning the standards required for the grade level and state assessments; however, they learn these at their pace with learning contracts and small group instruction, rather than whole group lessons.

My Project

Students use supplies throughout the year; however, we only receive supplies from parents at the very beginning of the year.

We are about halfway through our school year so it's time to replenish and replace some of our school supplies!

We are in need of a new pencil sharpener, more paper and glue sticks to get us through to the end of the school year. We also need more laminating sheets (to make games and other reference sheets around the classroom) and clipboards (to use while working around the room). These supplies will help us make it to the end of the year without running out of supplies.
