The school that I teach at is a public charter school, that is run like a private school. Students are admitted through a lottery program, which makes many of the students feel as though they are lucky to be a part of this community. Because we are a small, public school resources are limited. Students and teachers are required to provide most, if not all, of the supplies and texts that we need in our classrooms.
My students have a passion for learning and truly enjoy being a part of our school.
I have a large number of students who thank me when they leave my room, which was a concept completely foreign to me. At previous schools, my students dreaded being there, but at our school the environment is largely a positive one. I know it sounds cliche, but I really do enjoy seeing these students every day.
In my English class students do a variety of assignments throughout the school year. From reading online articles to presenting creative projects, there are a variety of materials needed to help my students succeed.
On a daily basis I hear the question "do you have ( ) I could use?" A pencil, more highlighters, headphones I could borrow, sticky notes, the list goes on and on.
Many of the materials students are missing are required for the course, some are optional but greatly impact student success.
Students in my class need pencils daily, they need highlighters and sticky notes to annotate their class novels, they need headphones to listen to articles that I've assigned to them online, they need colored pens to peer edit one another's essays, and they need materials to help them complete projects such as poster board, stencils, and card stock.
