My Students

Refugees moving to a new country. You walk into a classroom and you may not have ever had any formal education before. You have never read or written and you have this smiling teacher talking to you in a language you don't understand. These are the students I teach every day.

I work in a large school with a very high refugee population.

Many of my students have very limited schooling in their own language and are now thrust into a formal school setting. We move from learning letters to reading very quickly. We help students learn English while holding on and becoming literate in their own language as well. My students have come from all around the world, from many different and often difficult situations. They need the tools to make them successful.

My Project

Your donation will help me provide better instruction to my students. I will have a place to pull small groups of students to work with them at their own level. This table and chairs will bring great opportunities throughout the school year to bring students to the table to work on stills in small group.

Small group is very important to help students meet their full potential.

When students sit at a table like this the teacher will be able to listen and interact with 6 students at a time. The table can be a powerful tool for differentiation. While whole group instruction is efficient, we know it is far from adequate when it comes to meeting the needs of all learners. Conferring, is unparalleled when it comes to individualization.

Small groups help us bridge the gap between conferring and whole group instruction.
