My Students

All my students attend a public school in an urban environment. They are smart, energetic, and always eager to learn. Their favorite subject is science because of the different experiments we do, but they also enjoy working with their math tools and reading in large groups.

All my students are considered low income and qualify for free breakfast, lunch and snack.

Many of my students speak a first language that is not English and are English Language Learners, and some have individualized educational plans because they have special learning styles.

Despite these obstacles and hardships, we are one big community inside of our classroom, and there is nothing better than seeing smiles on their faces during my lessons because they strive to succeed.

All of my students stand out in their own creative ways. We all enjoy getting to know each other throughout the school year!

My Project

We work hard every single day in our classroom. It is now coming time where our students are running out of the school supplies that were provided to them at the beginning of the school year. Many of our students are using dried up whiteboard markers. The children share since we do not have enough to give them new ones. I was never able to give my students pencil pouches at the start of the school year, so they would be so happy to be able to organize their materials in this beautiful new pouch. I would also like to help them organize their papers into specific colored folders.
