My Students

My students come from a low-income area and low socioeconomic backgrounds. One hundred percent qualify for free breakfast and lunch. We lack many everyday school supplies, and many of the parents cannot afford to buy their children pencils, folders, and other essential supplies for school.

Many of my students come from low-income households.

Eighty-five percent of the students are English Language Learners, so many do not receive much help at home due to language. The teachers at our school are mentors to the children. We want all our students to succeed. The school provides a caring and warm environment to learn.

My Project

It is so much easier and nice to have an organized environment. I am going with tables instead of desk this year. So knowing where books or supplies are is beneficial for a great learning environment. Just like a home that is clean, inviting, and organized gives you great happiness being in the home. I am asking for three drawer carts to store their folders and books. My students will know where their writing and books belong. Organizing supplies will make teaching (and learning) easier. My students will have the every day supplies that they use right at their table. My students love to read so we need more leveled readers. I want my students to enjoy reading leveled books and even higher level books. Having books will help encourage reading more in class and at home. We are lucky to get the Accelerated Reading Program at our school now. Having all of these books available for my students will really make this program run smoothly in the classroom. A variety of books that are at my students reading level will help with their fluency and comprehension skills.
