My Students

I teach at a Title I school where the majority of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and go home to non-English speaking families. Some of our students are the only English speaking people in their families!

Our school has students who are homeless.

We have many students who live at the shelter for abused and battered women and children and many other students are living with two or three families in small apartments because they are homeless.

I make it my goal, every year, to supply my students with the supplies they need and hands-on experiences that they wouldn't get elsewhere. It’s very easy to tie a project or activity into the standards the kids are supposed to be learning. By getting our hands on what we’re learning, we learn even more. I love it when my students finish an activity and say what a great time they had and how much they learned! Our students are very bright and deserve every opportunity they get!

My Project

Every year the state of Florida awards books the Sunshine State Young Reader Award. There are fifteen books for students in grades three through five. I would love to have two sets of these books for our fourth graders to read throughout the school year. We have a lot of contests in fourth grade to see which class can read the most and which students can read the most. By having the books available in our classrooms, to our students, they will be well-read and loved by many of the kids in our building throughout the school year. By reading through the books, our student's reading comprehension and fluency will also greatly improve.
