My Students

My students come from low socioeconomic households. Many of them rent rooms or apartments with multiple families. All of my students are second language learners. My school has 100% free breakfast, brunch, and lunch.

My students are so excited and enthusiastic about coming to school to learn.

They eagerly read books and discuss them with classmates. Writing is done every day, and they love to share out in the author's chair. We need more resources so that students can get to grade level.

My Project

My students spend a lot of their time in front of a screen. We are virtual right now, so they log on daily for whole group lessons and small group lessons, and submit their assignments online. I am asking for a class set of rulers, and a class set of twistable crayons so each student can have their own ruler and twistable crayons at home. It is important for students to continue to do their work, and to do hands-on activities as well. Something as simple as having a fun crayon to do work with is motivating for students.
