My Students

I teach in an amazing elementary school in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The school district was recently taken over by the state which means the funds are low and the stakes are high! Almost all my students come from low-socioeconomic homes, homes with trauma and many from single parent households. My goal is to provide a safe and loving learning environment where they know they can make mistakes.

My students did not grow up speaking English and all of them have a various learning disability, but they come to school ready to learn and ready to give it their all!

The goal of my project is to supply my students with everything they need in order to succeed in school, from pencils to books with characters they can identify with. My students work hard and deserve a 21st century classroom.

My Project

All of these supplies will help my students come into an organized classroom everyday! The book bins will help students keep their supplies in a designated place. The supply cart will allow students to know where everything is and be able to start work without having to search for what they need! The media cart will allow me to set up a projector and document camera so we can have more interactive lessons. The large timer will give my students a visual countdown. So many of my students need to be able to see a countdown, so a large timer is essential!
