My Students

My students are not only hungry, but they are hungry to learn and create on a daily basis. In our Title I school, all students receive free breakfast and lunch on a daily basis.

My students face many challenges; many are from single-family homes or from military families.

Many of my students' families can't afford basic school supplies for their children, such as pencils, paper, or even materials needed to complete classroom reports. Despite these challenges, they are eager and ready to learn.

My students have struggles at home and it is my job to make sure they are able to accomplish what they wish in school. One thing I would like to do this year is to provide my students with a classroom that serves as an escape from whatever they are dealing with outside of school, a space where they feel happy, safe, and loved.

My Project

As student learn and grow, they need more space to explore concepts.

I have a goal to make more space for my students, which involves organizing our classroom library and making it more student friendly.

We have 3 rolling bookshelves that make up our classroom library. They are very large and take up a lot of space in our classroom. We are asking for 2 Threshold shelving units to serve as a bookcase for our classroom library. Having 2 Threshold shelving units will allow all of our classroom books to be neatly organized and stacked in one area, instead of several smaller bookshelves around the room.

We are also asking for various books about environmental science to expand their knowledge of the world around them. Students can read about extreme weather, the effects of insects on the environment, and climate change. Thank you for helping to make our 2018 spacious, clutter free and full of science!
