My Students

Our classroom is located in rural North Carolina. Most of our students are from low income families and are eligible for our program based on the household income. The students are so enthusiastic about coming to class and learn with all of their friends. The students are eager to explore. They love new and exciting activities. We provide many learning activities to the students. They are excited each day to see what fun and interesting projects we have in store when they get to school. We want to give them every opportunity to learn, prosper and succeed in life.

My Project

In our community we have a variety of cultures and we want to embrace all the ones within our demographic. My students learn many concepts and ideas from books and other literature. The books we have requested will help give the students a way to experience different languages and those cultures. The students also learn from a variety of technology. I want to support all the ways children learn in order to make sure that my students get an equal educational experience and other opportunities. By using these tools in the classroom it will help enhance their learning experience and prepare them for the future.
