My Students

The students in my first grade class attend an urban public school located in a large metropolitan city. The school population is culturally diverse and represents all social economic levels. Unfortunately, our school district has been plagued with financial problems for years and we have often suffered many financial reductions. Our school has even struggled to provide the essentials such as books, paper, and pencils. Even the technology that is available is insufficient in quantity and quality.

Nevertheless my students are amazing!

They are creative and critical thinkers. They are enthusiastic and have a passion for knowledge. They are quick learners, with an unbelievable depth of understanding at such a young age. They have so many interests, ask a ton of questions, and have an answer for everything. The students in my class come from a range of ethnic and economic backgrounds and many are provided free or reduced meals at our school. Some have the benefits of books and technology at home and others have to depend on the school for their learning experiences. Therefore, I am committed to educating and preparing my students for the challenges of tomorrow by providing them with every opportunity possible!

My Project

The students in my class love to read and write. Everyday we discuss different genres, authors writing styles and then the students write their own stories. These stories are included in class and individual books.

My students are in need of colored pencils, scissors, glue and ink so that we can complete our class book project.

The class supplies are running out and our book must be sent for publication soon! Right now some students have to share glue, scissors and other supplies. Unfortunately, many students often have to wait to use the supplies instead of working on their books. The new supplies would allow all students to complete their stories and be ready for publication.
