I teach at a Title One school where ninety-five percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Eighty percent of our students go home to non-English speaking families. Some of our students are the only English speaking people in their families!
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.
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 school's neighborhood was torn apart by Hurricane Irma. We've been out of school for almost two weeks and will hopefully, be back in school next week. Most of our students live in apartments or mobile homes with other families and their homes were torn apart or flooded. We are starting from scratch just three weeks into the school year. My students need new homework folders, new composition notebooks for their homework and new chapter books that they took home to work on.
Having the items replaced that were ruined in the hurricane, will be a refreshing start for my students.
