My Students

I teach at a Title I school, where the majority of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and go home to non-English speaking families. Some of our students are the only English speaking people in their families!

Our school has students who are homeless.

We have many students who live at the shelter for abused and battered women and children and many other students are living with two or three families in small apartments because they are homeless.

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. It’s very easy to tie a project or activity into the standards the kids are supposed to be learning. By getting our hands on what we’re learning, we learn even more. 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 Project

Each week my students are required to read stories and take quizzes on those stories. This program our whole school uses is called Reading Counts. Every day when a student passes a reading counts test they get to put their name in a basket. Every Friday we draw names for prizes.

My students love this program and the incentive for reading.

They are highly motivated to read and love passing those quizzes.

Our prize supply is running low. I surveyed my students and slime, hair bows, diaries, and drawstring backpacks are what they love best! These STEAM sets will be loved by all who win and earn them,
