My Students

As a teacher in Camden, New Jersey, I know that my students face challenges. Yet, my students are some of the most hardworking fifth graders. Every day, they enter school with a will and desire to learn. They strive for excellence on a daily basis and do not rest until success is achieved. My students are an extraordinary group of children, and their determination is inspiring.

In my classroom, we strive for success and work until we exceed our goals.

My students' successes are celebrated, in and out of the classroom. My classroom is a positive and welcoming learning environment where all students are celebrated and loved.

My Project

In our classroom, we have a lot of learning materials and not enough space to store them. We have folders, text books, notebooks, silent reading books, novels, and other materials that are vital to our day-to-day operations. With our limited space, our materials get lost, ripped, ruined, and, even misplaced on occasion.

In order to alleviate the problems with our storage, our classroom would benefit from seat back pockets.

This at-your-seat storage system would allow the students in the classroom to keep the necessary materials directly at their seats. In the pockets, we can keep our books, folders, and notebooks, so that we have direct access to them. With the seat storage system, we would not have to waste any class time passing out or looking for our materials. We can spend more time focusing on our learning!
