My Students

My students are incredible. Being part of an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) school community has helped my students grow into incredibly caring, reflective, and empathetic individuals who want to make the world a better place through inquiry and action. Every day, my students are working on developing their understanding of universal concepts like reflection, perspective, and responsibility.

My school is an incredibly diverse place, and this diversity makes it a unique, vibrant place for students to learn and grow.

Students are from a range of backgrounds. Some come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, while others are living in more financially secure households. About a third of my students are Latino; another third are black or Somali; another third are white. About a third of my students are English language learners (ELLs). Many are considered advanced learners in need of advanced differentiation.

My Project

Pencils are an absolutely essential classroom supply. We've reached that time of year where most of our pencils are worn down and eraserless. The majority of our pencils that remain unsharpened are the type that get destroyed in the pencil sharpener or break immediately upon being used after sharpening.

We are in need of high-quality pencils that don't get destroyed in the sharpener, as well as a new pencil sharpener that has a sharp blade.

These Ticonderoga pencils will do the trick. The colors are an added plus that students enjoy. Students will use these pencils and this sharpener for nearly everything we do in the classroom, including vocabulary practice, math assignments, essay writing, and more!
