My Students

My students are very resilient! Almost all of my students come from low-income households and are met every day with challenges ranging from broken families to difficult living conditions. Despite this, my students come to school excited to learn new things.

Our school borders a Native American Indian reservation and 85% of our students are Navajo.

All of the students at our school receive free lunch and breakfast. The students are hard working, and despite many hardships, they have continued to make great gains academically. Our teachers are very dedicated and provide many of our much-needed materials out-of-pocket.

My Project

My students need all of the exposure to nonfiction text that they can get. These educational kits will allow my students to have many opportunities to read, talk about, and write nonfiction texts.

Nonfiction text structures are foundational skills in fifth grade and essential to learning about the world around us.

These skills will facilitate continued learning throughout their educational careers and throughout their lives. Many of my students are learning English as a second language and talking and writing about text is very important to their progress. These kits will help and encourage many students in the coming years!
