My Students

Last school year, 2018-2019, our staff identified 3,335 homeless students. This is 37% of our district! All of our students automatically qualify for free or reduced-price lunch due to the economic status of our community. Many of our parents are employed as field workers, where paychecks can be small or sporadic, especially in winter when there is not as much work. More than half of my class speaks English as their second language, and some have special needs. With that being said, they all love to come to school and want to learn. They deserve all the resources we can give to help them to be successful in school.

My Project

This project is to support a school-wide positive intervention program that we are launching this year. We are creating a reward store for students! The students will have an opportunity to earn tickets in class for increased attention and participation.

Then they will be able to use those tickets to purchase rewards like (Mini Locking Diaries, Hot Wheels Monster Trucks, Unicorn Notepad and Pen Set and Cartoon Gel Ink Pens, and other materials) at the school-reward shop weekly.

This is a way for teachers and school staff to reward positive behavior and in turn, focus less on negative behaviors. When focusing on the positives, the students' positive behavior will increase and their negative behaviors will decrease. This allows students to learn more as a result! Thank you for all your support.
