My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want to provide my students with engaging and innovative learning experiences.

My students are motivated, excited, and love to learn!

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. The majority of my students are English Language Learners and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By creating a positive and creative classroom environment, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Each year we teach about life cycles to our amazing first graders. They love the hands-on experience and exploratory learning environment. Unfortunately, our incubators have left us without chicks for a few years now. We need more reliable equipment with temperature controls to create a successful learning experience for our first graders. We believe that the Brinsea egg incubators have a reputation for being both reliable and accurate.

Can you imagine the excitement on our students' faces when the eggs they have incubated for three weeks finally hatch?

It is such an amazing moment we want to provide for our students. Thank you for considering supporting our little project!
