My Students

I teach in a low-income English language learning school where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Our scores are at the bottom 5% statewide. Many students come from homes with little or nothing regarding print, text, and technology. They are very sweet kids who are excited about learning.

Many of our students' families receive public assistance such as food stamps, however the rules of these programs do not allow for the purchase of hygiene products that are a necessity of basic human needs.

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They come to school with the idea that things will change: they will change, their future will change, their lives will change. My students attend school in Arvin, CA and go to school for a better life and future. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything. I want to expose them to all I can, making the world more real and their futures brighter. We are in this together!

My Project

Our school uses a school wide positive behavior intervention system called PBIS. This behavior system allows students to earn rewards for their good behavior. Most students have done a fantastic job of following our school wide rules: Safety First, Organized and on task, Act responsibly and Respect self and others SOAR. Purchasing rewards can be very expensive when we have over 1000 students. . The rewards that my project asks for will be be done as drawings. For example, randomly during the day I will pull out SOAR tickets and whomever gets chosen get to come to my room and choose a supply that they want as well as need.

Most of our students are unable to come to school with their own supplies so this will allow them the opportunity to choose their very own !

It also gives them something to look forward to.
