My Students

My students are special because 100% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. We are considered to be a low-performing school that is attempting to improve our performance status. Our students are the highlight of our day and continue to work at their highest potential. This is despite the struggles that they face on the daily.

Our mission is "seek to inspire students to be successful learners for the 21st century".

This means that we want to give the students every opportunity to become global learners.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students’ lives by increasing their comprehension and writing skills. The notebooks will not only be used as a form of expression but will also allow them to make meaning of the texts in which they read.

The notebooks will be used on a daily basis in working on creating clear and concise sentences and analyzing texts to attain the full meaning.

The various components will include knowledge, reading, writing, and vocabulary. These are all areas in which my students require additional practice with. This will also allow them the opportunity to have the space to analyze and break apart texts to understand the author's meaning, which sometimes may be hidden.
