My Students

I am teaching English Language learners from 7th grade to 12th grade this school year. Though these students are struggling with the English language but I can see their motivation and hardwork to come to school and learn.

My students' determination to learn despite their struggles inspired me to do my best to help them achieve their individual goals.

As their teacher, I want to establish a good realtionship with my students. I believe that my students are capable of great things if given the right opportunities and resources. I am looking forward to make projects to benefit my students and help them realize their utmost potential.

My Project

As we begin this school year, I would like my students to have all the resources and supplies for them to be successful. In this project, I am requesting some basic supplies we would need to have a great start this year.

Having the right materials in the class can make a big difference to my students' engagement and motivation.

I am requesting Post-it sticky notes. My students need these when doing exit tickets to show what they have learned in my class. I also need dry erase markers for our spelling activities. Since my students are English learners, it is important for them to have daily drills in spelling and vocabulary. I also need coloring materials so my students can show their learning through creative art works. I also need laminating sheets for my task cards. It is important to laminate our task cards so that we can utilize them for a longer period of time.

These supplies will help my students do our daily tasks with ease and will help them feel more motivated to do their best. Thank you in advance for helping us realize this project.
