My Students

My district is a large district within the state, and our school is one that has many refugees who may have never been in school before. They face struggles of keeping up with their school work, adjusting to life in America, and to top it all, learn a new language. Needless to say, school is not always their first priority. Yet, even so, these students have so much potential. I believe that if I am able to engage them, then they will begin to learn. They have the potential to accomplish so much more than they believe.

My students are incredibly street smart and can problem solve outside of the classroom.

Many of them are taking care of themselves and siblings. This means that when they are in my class not doing the work, it is because I have either not explained it well, this skill has never been taught, or the language to communicate is still being built. I believe that they are truly capable of conquering all their obstacles.

My Project

Our students need to be able to learn in a myriad of ways. This means that we need to have the materials in order to teach using various learning styles. While the materials have been gathered, there is no place to store them in the classroom. This means that without the storage space, I cannot bring the materials into my classroom.

With the help of these storage containers, I will be able to provide more opportunities in their learning style using a wide variety of methods.

I can have all the materials but without a place to put them, I cannot utilize them.
