My Students

I am very grateful to work with such a fantastic group of fourth graders. There are more than six different languages spoken in my classroom alone. These happy, curious, and eager students walk into my classroom every day willing to do their best despite some of the hardships that are happening right outside their front door and in their daily lives.

Our school is an urban, public school that services over 800 students from Pre-K to 4th grade.

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 85% of our students receiving free lunch or reduced-price lunch. Many of our students receive food backpacks each weekend. We offer several clubs and organizations like GirlStart, Sister to Sister, Brother to Brother, G.A.P. and Young Leaders of Tomorrow, just to name a few. These extracurricular activities promote and encourage academic success as well as foster positive social skills and build meaningful relationships. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the Houston metro area with students who speak a variety of languages. As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics, as well.

My Project

The poly binder folder will fit in their grade level AVID binder. This folder will allow them to have all of their math and science tools in one place and easy access to use them in class or at home. So no more excuses about I could not do my homework because my tools were at school. It also offers a specific place just to place their math journal and a specific place to place their science journal. The The poly binders are the perfect tool to help keep my students organized and ready to start the day on a positive note.
