I have worked at this small community school for well over sixteen years. I have witnessed growth of students on a monumental scale. The area in which I teach places a premium on learning and involvement. Every year the students and their motivations, prior knowledge, etc. change, which ultimately brings about a new and exciting challenge.
The students I have this year inspire me every day by their fervor and drive.
It is remarkable all that they have to offer the present and the future. I am thrilled to be a part of their learning experience and the journey of life they are on.
Perhaps the class I am most excited about is the AVID class. As this is my first year as an AVID teacher, I find myself in awe of my class because of their willingness to put forth that extra effort to be successful. It is because of them I am creating this DonorsChoose project.
These coins would make a fantastic addition to our classroom. Imagine, if you will, the possibilities to be had with these items. The lessons which could be taught and the memories waiting to be made.
How cool would it be to not only hear and see history but to touch it as well!
I would like to give the students I teach an opportunity which many their age could only imagine having. Not only would the students get to feel something nearly two thousand years old, but they would also have a hand in trying to recover an artifact's former glory.
These coins would be used in a project based on the Roman Empire. The students will be able to act as if they are archaeologists uncovering years of wear on the artifacts. At the end of the project, the students will be given the opportunity to win a coin to take home as a keepsake.
I would love to see the excitement on their faces when this opportunity is presented to them.
