My Students

Every day, my students ask, "Miss, what are we doing today?" and the usual response is "Learning!" followed by groans and eye-rolling. My students come from low-income households and receive free breakfast and lunch in school.

Often, schoolwork isn't their primary focus and it can be hard to motivate them to take their learning seriously.

I regularly introduce outside resources like biographies, film studies, and guest speakers to spark their interest in history. As part of my practice, I try to bring creative and challenging research projects to the classroom, in order to advance their learning and inquiry about the world around them.

My Project

Since the school copiers are on a different floor that students are not given access to we have recently been donated an HP printer for our classroom. We have realized that we are in need of some toner and copy paper in order to utilize our new printer's functions. My students are very excited to use the printer for extra copies in class, resumes, college and job applications, and assignments.

This toner and paper will allow my students to have access to all of these things right in the classroom.

Many students require tangible assignments in class, and this gives me a way to quickly reprint any assignment or item we are using so they can see it up close.
