My Students

I teach at a Title I school, so my students encounter many challenges in their lives. Many of them are being raised by a single parent or grandparent. In some cases, both parents live in the same house, work two jobs, and the students still receive free lunch based on their socioeconomic status, preventing them from experiencing things that many of us consider "ordinary or common."

My fifth grade students are gregarious, inquisitive, bilingual children from different countries with similar cultures in need of materials that will inspire academic excellence and help them reach their full potential.Because they are from different countries and know what educational life can sometimes be, their conversations are usually about how they are grateful for being able to enjoy living in the United States.

However, since Hurricane Harvey, many of those conversations have diminished. The effects have been lasting.

It is not possible for me to determine the direction their home life unfolds, but what I can do for them is try to provide a classroom in which they can feel safe to experience new things and reach new goals. My goal is to inspire them to academic excellence by reaching their full potential.

My Project

I believe that organization is important to student success. One of the many things I teach my students is to be organized. You save time and the trouble of going through an unorganized area if you're organized.

My fifth graders need two sets of six STERILITE ClearView Latch Boxes and 100 count Cardinal HOLDit Self-Adhesive 3 x 5-Inch Index Card Pockets to stay organized.

They'll be able to access materials during Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies center groups independently, as well as have sets of books readily organized and available for their time in literature circles. The self adhesive pockets will help us label all the boxes, so we can easily identify it's contents.

Having these two sets of six STERILITE ClearView Latch Boxes and 100 count Cardinal HOLDit! Self-Adhesive 3 x 5-Inch Index Card Pockets will allow my time with my small group to flow without interruptions. It will also help in storing and preserving these activities and books to be used year after year. Thank you for your contribution to this project.
