My Students

I teach in a public school located in a high poverty district. Students at my school are creative, hard-working, and caring. They are empathetic towards others, even though many face their own obstacles. Whenever our school has fundraisers to help others (raising money for St. Jude, UNICEF, etc.), students do their very best to contribute what they can. They show compassion towards others and are extremely grateful when others are generous to them. Although many of the students in my school face poverty, they have positive attitudes and do their very best each and every day.

My Project

Scholastic News is an educational magazine subscription that focuses on relevant topics (current events) that are age-appropriate and engaging. We would get a new magazine every week for the entire school year. They provide an opportunity to combine reading skills and social studies.

Scholastic News magazines will help spark discussions and can be used as a springboard to research projects and essays.

​They can inspire debate and lead to a lesson about fact versus opinion and a variety of other relevant skills. There are countless ways these magazines will make a difference. These magazines will make it possible for students to have a better understanding of the world.
