My Students

I have a very special group of students. They are all talented and excited when it comes to learning new things. We begin our day every day with this mantra: I am strong. I am smart. We are all equal. They say each line together as a class and enjoy this time of the day. I want each of them to have faith in themselves and see themselves as I do. Each one is special and has so much to offer the world.

Our school is a Title I school with over 80% of our students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

We also have a large ELL population and many migrant families. The children from migrant families spend most of the year split between multiple schools, causing a disruption in their education for which I must try to make up while they are with me. Although my students come with these obstacles in their paths, they are able to enjoy learning and remind me of the joys as well.

My Project

In our classroom, we practice flexible seating. This means students do not have desks available to them to keep all of their papers and folders. They need organizer trays to help them keep their stuff together and organized as they move around the room to the various seating options. They are also in need of new whiteboards to work out their math problems on. As well as ink for our classroom printer which we use to print out projects they work on throughout the year.

Organization is a key factor in helping students to be better prepared for higher education.

Helping my students learn to be organized and responsible for their materials at a young age gives them a lifelong skill.
