As a second year teacher, I am coming into the classroom with minimal materials, but full motivation to mold our future leaders' brain's. I have a great group of students that all have amazing potential to do something awesome with their lives! Most of my students come from homes with little resources (especially after Hurricane Florence) and are unable to bring necessary materials to class. The majority of my students receive free or reduced lunch; as well as Backpack buddies (making sure they have food at home on the weekends.) After Hurricane Florence our students and our schools suffered some serious loss. We are currently in the process of building back up our community.
No child should feel held back from learning because they don't have necessary materials in the classroom.
My students become easily discouraged and don't realize how much support they have. I want to see everyone of my students succeed in and out of the classroom. With the proper materials I am positive it will make a major positive impact in my classroom.
Everyone classroom is full of a diverse population of learners. We all come from different backgrounds and different ways of life. Some students are really energetic and ready to learn, while others need that subtle push to get there. We all learn at a different pace and may struggle in certain areas.
Students shouldn't feel they are less of a person because they are different than other students.
I would like to give my students new books for our library that are on various reading levels. Giving students options of titles, on their level, can encourage them to fall in love with reading. I have a very diverse group of students this year. Their math skills are staggered across all of our standards and lessons we have to learn. Some are more advanced than others, while some are still below grade level. Differentiating work is a task that all teachers face. Being able to assign center work to certain students based on their levels causes less frustration and allows students to learn in a more stress free way.
This project is aimed to make my students feel more comfortable and equal on our journey to academic success.
