My Students

We are a Title I school with populations of Hispanic, African-American, Caucasian and mixed race students. Due to the needs in the county in which I teach, all students now receive free breakfast and lunch. My students deserve a quality education regardless of their socioeconomic status.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

(Nelson Mandela) I want my students to know they are loved and cared about. They need access to materials that will further their learning.

My Project

Have ever tried to work when you were distracted? It is not an easy task! My students are hard workers but some are easily distracted. They need these privacy shields to work independently and without distraction.

With the use of privacy shields, my students will be able to keep their focus.

My students sit in groups of 4-5. This is great for group work, but testing and independent work time can be challenging. Using privacy shields allows my students to focus on doing their very best without other people peeking at their work. Privacy shields will allow my students the ability to work without distractions.
