My Students

My students are part of the largest school district in New Hampshire. We proudly boast the highest ethnicity and language diversity in the state! My students belong to one of four middle schools in our district and come from a large diversity of socioeconomic backgrounds.

While being part of such a diverse school district gives my students advantages, they also have to deal with many challenges as well.

Many times funds for simple classroom supplies are not available on a per-family basis. Some of my students are also refugees, immigrants or transient due to family situations. While this gives them a world of personal experience and often makes them stronger than the average person, it also makes it difficult to focus, learn another language and fill in pieces of curriculum that may be missing.

My Project

My students are currently working on building their reading, writing, and vocabulary skills. I have implemented the Daily 3 into my curriculum where students spend each day focusing on these literacy skills in various ways. Organization, documentation, and differentiated instruction are key components in academic success.

Students grow as learners and individuals when tracking their own progress as well as reflecting on how they have improved from where they began.

That is why my students need notebooks, pencils, folders, and white boards. These materials will be used to help students strengthen their reading, writing, organization, and reflect on their progress!
