My Students

As a teacher in a low-income inner city school region, with a large population of immigrant refugee families from a variety of Latin American countries including Cuba, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Honduras and several others, I see that my students are faced with many challenges, both in and out of the classroom.

Most recently, our school, community and our students and their families have been affected by the effects of several hurricanes.

Some families have had to relocate into our school community. The damage ranges depending upon the area, but typically includes flooding, damage to structures, loss of electricity and loss of personal items. Regardless of these challenges, the majority of the students are very determined and eager to succeed.

The students in my class attend a Title I school, with a large population of ESL students, most of whom receive free or reduced price lunch. The school is located in a transient Hispanic immigrant area, with a mostly low socioeconomic level. Most of the parents are struggling to make ends meet; therefore, most of these families have only the bare essentials and lack experiences, time and finances to invest in promoting a home environment that is conducive to learning.

My Project

Having a stand up presentation cart and white board materials (erasers and markers) will allow my students the opportunity to engage in their academic goals, in a fun, interactive and dynamic fashion.

Many of my students are active, visual learners.

The materials requested will allow me to meet these students' needs, while providing more entertaining ways to teach and get the lesson objectives and facts across. These materials are easy to transport (cart on wheels), thus allowing the opportunity to engage in presentations, in different parts of the classroom, as well as in different venues.

Several of the students in my class have been diagnosed as ADHD and would greatly benefit from alternating learning venues. They are often distracted and lack focus. They would greatly benefit from being able to engage in physical movement while working on individual, pair or group academic presentations.

Additionally, the requested materials can be used for performances and presentations in the cafeteria, and even for our end of the year awards assembly.
