My Students

There are many great things going on at our school. Our school is changing the distinguish practice by becoming a STEAM school. Sixth-grade students will be participating in band class and will be able to study one instrument for the school year.

As a teacher of students who come from situations that are beyond their control, I push them to persevere and be the best that they can be despite circumstances.

Some of my students are either homeless or live in motels or a crowded room. Some of my students are responsible for caring for their younger siblings as their parents work long hours. Regardless of the situation, they come to school and learn. Living close to a popular tourist attraction, many of my students and their families are unable to go because they can’t afford it. Our school is a Title I school where the majority of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My Project

In my class, we are currently utilizing a classroom economy. In doing this, my students are learning to be financial literacy by participating in one. They will be earning classroom bucks by coming to school, completing assignments, and doing classroom jobs. Students will also pay fines and rent. In order to motivate students to save and want to earn classroom bucks, I have a student store where they can spend money or save for later. The student store needs to be restocked. I would like to add more fun goodies such as pens, Washi tape, fingerboards, bean bag plush, and 3D puzzles. These are things that young students enjoy.

It is extremely important to learn at a young age about financial literacy so they can make wise choices in the future.

I understand this now as an adult, the importance of learning financial literacy early so I can save for my future and not make unwise spending choices. This is a skill that I would like my students to learn.
