Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

I teach Reading, ELA and social studies to 4th graders in a high-needs, Title I, urban elementary school. Even though they are constantly faced with challenges, they are never deterred. When my kids enter our Reading/ELA class, they aren’t just students.

They are readers, critical thinkers, problem-solvers and difference makers, both despite and due to their often difficult home lives.

They are humble, curious hard workers, who strive to bring their most positive attitudes and grit to every lesson, challenge and learning experience. I am constantly in awe of their resilience and bravery. Their curiosity, intellect and compassion are matched only by their ambition & and resilience. The ways that they support and encourage each other are so real and inspirational that there’s no doubt that they’re tomorrow’s leaders.

My Project

This laminator will allow me to efficiently print and protect Reading center activities to strengthen my students' skills. Instead of waiting for our busy Media Specialist to laminate our materials, I'll be able to do it myself. This means faster practice for the growing readers and less stress for everyone. It's a win-win for all parties involved. Help me take the guess work out of when our activities will be center-rotation ready. I will be able to assess student needs, identify, print and laminate the materials within hours, not days. This will be hugely beneficial for my amazing, inquisitive readers.
