My Students

My students come to school every day ready to learn and explore! My classroom of fourth grade ESOL students come from countries such as Algeria and Cambodia.

As an ESOL teacher, I have a diverse group of students from many linguistic backgrounds.

My students come to school eager to learn and explore! Our school community works hard to provide the best possible education for our students! For many of my students, this is their first experience with English. In my school of over 500 students, almost 50% of the students are English Language Learners. There are 20 different language groups in my school. We celebrate the rich diversity of our school community.

My Project

It is a challenge to keep my students and classroom germ-free and healthy. My students need cleaning supplies such as a Shark Navigator Vacuum, Wet Swiffers, Purell, and Mrs. Meyers Multi-Surface Spray Cleaner to keep our classroom healthy and clean! The close contact between each student allows germs to spread very easily. We want to clean and keep every surface of our classroom healthy and safe. Our classroom is in one of the oldest operating school buildings in our city. Keeping our classroom dust-free is a constant challenge. We will use the Shark Navigator Vacuum to clean up dust and dirt. We will use the Swiffers to keep our classroom floor dirt-free. The Clorox Wipes will be used to cleanse our classroom headphones, computer keyboard, and classroom tables. We will even use the Clorox Wipes to wipe off our classroom pencils. The Clorox Wipes and Meyers Cleaner will also be used to clean our tables and chairs.

Your donation to our classroom will help keep my ESOL students healthy and germ-free.

Children are able to come to school and learn when they feel safe and healthy. Your donation will provide Clorox Wipes, hand sanitizer, and hand soap that we desperately need. Your generosity will make my classroom a healthy and clean place to learn! Your support is greatly appreciated!
