My Students

My students are from a small town in Palm Beach County and come from a variety of different economic backgrounds where 91% of students are on free and reduced-price lunch. Some students come into class without knowing any English! This has been the story for many of my students this past school year. Although I have students from various backgrounds, my school did receive new students who were displaced because of Hurricane Maria last school year. These students have moved to Florida because of devastation and destruction to their home and school in Puerto Rico. This effect has given these children a new home, school, friends, language, and culture.

I have been enjoying supporting my newest students.

After giving them time to feel welcome to our school and community, I have found areas where I can help them grow and develop within their overall academics including reading, writing and learning to speak English. I love to watch all the growth and accomplishments of every child, every day. Year after year, my heart only grows bigger for all of my students with each year of teaching. Every child has a special place in my heart.

My Project

When students have the basic school supplies they will be ready to learn and not have to worry about finding a sharpened pencil. I like to provide my students with pencils, pens, Expo dry erase markers, paper, antibacterial wipes colorful crayons and multicultural crayons. When students are prepared for school with basic supplies available, they will be able to concentrate on their studies. Thank you for making a difference in my students lives by meeting this need. The card stock paper is for projects and the multicultural crayons along with regular crayons provide students with colors to truly express themselves.
