My Students

My average day in the classroom begins when I welcome my eighth-grade students, including regular, special, and emotional needs children, into our class. I want my students to succeed. My students like to participate in the school drama club, which is why I sponsor this activity. I teach in a large, diverse, K-8 high poverty school in an urban area of Philadelphia that experiences crime. Our school receives Title I funding, and the entire school is eligible for free breakfast and lunch. The students come to school eager to learn from various living situations such as single parents, foster homes, homeless shelters, or extended family living.

My students are the most eccentric, funny, and smart kids you would ever want to meet.

Our skill levels and overall level of support vary by student. Some of my students require additional academic support, and some require additional emotional support. One thing that is universal is our desire to work together.

On the first day of school, we identify ourselves as "a family." A family takes care of one another and looks out for one another. This is what we do. We work together to accomplish our goals.

My Project

My students have done a remarkable job this school year. One of the aspects that I feel would make everything even better is a place to truly organize our work and materials we use on a daily basis. I have over eighty students coming into and out of my classroom everyday. Having a storage system for our daily supplies and items, novels, and work would greatly help the flow of the classroom.

In addition, we do so much work on our computers and technology that we have a strong need for toner for our printer.

My students love seeing their work displayed, so we need to keep our printer "fed" all the time.

Lastly, I want my students to be excited about reading, so the two novels requested are books that have been turned into featured films. My students have seen these movies and now are clamoring for the books. I want them to "want" to read. Therefore, these books would be welcome additions to our classroom library.
