My Students

As long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. My students come from low-income/high-poverty homes. All of them receive free school lunch during the school year. Most of them are raised in single parent homes. My students are faced with many challenges at home and in school, but it is my goal to try and make this school year a memorable one.

My students are vibrant, intelligent six year olds who love to learn.

We are determined to ensure each scholar shines to the brightest of their abilities. The diversity in our school has created scholars who are caring, fearless, accepting, and eager to learn. From the moment we are together we are learning and having fun while doing it. I am really looking forward to school year 2020-2021.

My Project

These smocks and disposable gowns will provide my scholars with the tools needed for small group reading instruction as well as one to one conferences where students are provided with immediate feedback for improvement. My school is currently creating a system where students will rotate and participate in blending learning. Students will have a schedule where half will be learning at school and the other half will learn at home. While only half of my students will be in the school building at one time, they will require constant reminders to socially distance themselves.

My students will have to make many adjustments when they return to the brick and mortar school building in the fall, social distancing will indeed be a challenge.

These smocks and disposable gowns will keep us safe from the germs on our clothing when we are in the brick and mortar school building. This project will enable learners to stay safe while participating in class with one another.
