My Students

My students come to school excited to learn. This year, I get the privilege of looping with my first graders and have them one more year in second grade. They attend a high poverty school with very limited resources. Eight-five percent of our students are offered a free hot breakfast, lunch, and after school take-home meals.

A large number of my students attend a before-school program and an after-school program, leaving them at school for close to a total of 8-10 hours per day.

Our school is like a second home to my students. I am always looking for more ways to engage my students and nurture their love of learning.

My Project

The rewards in our Treasure Box help students remember the classroom rules and commonsense manners. During my fifteen years of teaching, I've come to realize that many students want a better life but struggle with the amount of effort required to achieve it. They do not realize that applying themselves while they are young will make it easier for them to reach their goals. Rewards such as the Amy & Benton 120PCS Carnival Prizes for Kids/Box Prize Toy Assortment for Classroom and holiday craft activities will help them get over that hurdle.

By using rewards, I encourage my students to put aside some of their home problems and find a reason to apply themselves in school.

As we progress through the year, I increase the amount of work needed to earn the rewards, gradually phasing them out altogether as the students begin to show responsibility for their own behavior and work ethic. It also helps that they see the association between completing work, behaving, and getting good grades.
