My students are a diverse set of inner city learners. They vary from single parent learners to English language learners who live in temporary homes.
In all, they are eager to learn and overcome their inherit adversity.
Their vibrant and helpful demeanor makes teaching them a joy. These students are remarkable because as children they don't let their circumstances limit their learning. When they can't find a pencil they get a crayon. If they don't have a notebook, they will find something else to write on.
This class also has students with special learning needs. These specific students are the first ones to log on and participate in class. They aren't afraid to take risks and love to help each other during class.
As an inner city teacher to remote students, I am finding it difficult for them to optimize their learning experience from home. They are lacking these resources to help them grapple with their in-home schooling.
The headphones will help them focus on the lesson by deterring the in home distractions as some of them also have siblings who are remote as well.
The math resources will help me teach them the skills needed to master the curriculum by showing them concrete examples. the rulers will be sent home for their use.
Lastly, the notebooks will give all students equal access to writing. Some don't have a decent notebook or a proper one at that. Writing is vital to their academic success.
