My Students

My co-teacher and I have a wonderful class of 4th and 5th graders. While a large portion of our students walk short distances to our school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, many families choose to commute from other neighborhoods - some coming all the way from the Bronx, Queens, and outer Brooklyn every day. 72% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches. Our students are curious, independent, and excited to learn. Our classroom is built around values: friendship, loyalty, courage, respect, and integrity.

My Project

Our students can reach unbelievably great heights, but sometimes they need an extra little push - or pull - to get them all the way there. We are setting up a new and improved incentive system in our classroom to help keep students motivated to work hard through this tough test prep season.

This prize box plays an integral role in rewarding their hard work in the moment, since students don't see their test scores til the following September.

Our kids have shown incredible growth so far, and we know we can push them even harder. Help us get the best carrots in the school!
