My Students

My students are in a low-income area. Their parents work a lot in order to support them. It is difficult for parents to take time off to be in the school volunteering. These students face struggles such as lack of food and basic necessities, yet they are so resilient. I grew up in this community and faced many of the same challenges that my students face every day. I chose to teach here with the hopes of inspiring at least one child. The students at our school have so much potential!

Each year my students love to help each other succeed, and they assist me in creating a classroom that cares!

I am in awe of the things they do to help each other daily.

The students at this school are becoming very excellent at technology, and they are always teaching me new things. Our school now has 1-to-1 technology, and the students are loving it. They are taking ownership of their learning through their data books and are reaching new heights all the time.

My Project

Third graders love disgusting things. There are so many books out there full of the stuff they love to read. I am trying to reach some of my students that despise reading. I really feel that these books will get them excited to read even if it is just to gross out there friends.

Third graders love to learn new things and teach them to their peers, what better thing to teach there peers than reading books and sharing things that will disgust them!I know that if these books were around when my brother was in elementary school he would have been excited to pick one up.
