My Students

"Teachers open doors but everyone must enter themselves." I want to provide as many opportunities as I can!

My students are 80% in poverty.

They come primarily from single family working mothers. They live on the edge of our ever growing capital city boundaries but many have never left the city. They are innocents in many ways, having never experienced the simple pleasures most kids have like carving pumpkins or making gingerbread houses. They hide this innocence under the tough veneer of hard faces as life has taught them to in order to survive. They are desperate for acceptance and desire to do well but lack the support they need.

My Project

With the purchase of 30 Scholastic Science News magazines, students will be able to look at their own copy of a colorful and interesting magazine filled with current events and topics that are interesting to learn about. 26 issues would be enough to read 1 magazine a week as a current event day filled with discussion and debate. Without even knowing it they would be enhancing their reading skills as well as their knowledge base. This classroom set could be shared by teachers and reach as many as 250 students!

Our current textbooks are over 10 years old and are very worn.

There are not enough copies for each student and we share. The material is outdated and no longer accurate on many topics including space, weather, and chemistry. Current magazine issues would give us more relevant information and a variety of it.
