My Students

Hello, my name is Jacositi Banks. I am currently in my fourth year of teaching, and I must say this year has been one of the most difficult years, since I have been teaching. With Covid-19 heavily present this school year, we have been faced with so many obstacles. Our job as educators has been more and more demanding. With little to no support. We are having to make sure we have everything we need, not only for basic classroom needs, but we also have to make sure we are all safe. Right now, we need all the assistance we can get to make our just a little easier.

My Project

Our students deserve a safe and enjoyable year. We owe it to our scholars to make sure they receive both. I want to be able to provide our students the comfort of knowing without a doubt that they will be safe when entering my room as well as knowing if they don't have the proper supplies, their teacher have their back. We have an obligation to our students. By far this has been one of the toughest years for not only the students, but the teachers as well. We need to have a little burden lifted off all of us.
