My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income school district affected by Hurricane Harvey. My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom, and the hurricane has only elevated the difficulties they face. One hundred percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch at my Title I school in Port Arthur, Texas.

Even though many of my students are displaced, they are coming to school with excitement and an eagerness for learning.

I want to provide my students with positive and exciting learning experiences that help them learn and grow while they are with me. Though I cannot control their experiences at home, I can control what happens in my classroom and with your help I can make sure they participate in interesting and compelling learning experiences!

My Project

With your help, I would love to provide my students with a hands on learning experience! This can be achieved with the use of reading board games, reading flash cards, fluency games, and many other items this project would provide!

My mission is to excite my students about learning and reading and these games would provide them with just that!

In third grade, my students are submerged into difficult concepts and they can sometimes get overwhelmed. This project would allow them to learn while also having fun. Some students might not even realize they are learning! Excitement is often a part of education we forget because we are so focused on the goal but why not use excitement to get us there!
