My Students

With nearly 90% of the student population identifying as a minority race, our school serves a diversity of students of color. Over a third of these students are identified as English Language Learners while one in five have disabilities. Considering these demographics, it is fair to say that most of these students face a variety of daily obstacles.

Despite adversity, our students are constantly working together to build up a multicultural community of achievers.

These past few years have been challenging, especially for low-income and minority communities. Many of our students are in desperate need of a stable, reliable environment to grow.

My Project

These shelves will be a great tool for storing individual student works. Currently, students store their work with their classmates in a single cubby for each time block. In my experience, this method of storing work between classes can lead to chaos. While it gets the job done, students often spend a few minutes every day looking for their projects. Additionally, students will sometimes lose work when they forget to write their names.

Allowing each student their own shelf will both decrease the time it takes for students to retrieve their work and create a sense of belonging within the classroom.

I plan on labeling each shelf with the student's name, so every day, they know exactly where to look for their projects. This system will also help build a sense of security with the students by preventing the loss of any work.
