My Students

As a teacher of economically disadvantaged students in an urban school district, we face many challenges, both in and out of school. Despite their challenges, my students are creative, energetic, and enthusiastic about learning. I truly want to provided them with a meaningful learning experience they deserve.

The majority of my students receive free breakfast and lunch as part of our Title I based program services.

Most of my students are first generation Americans and English is their second language. There parents are trying to do their best for their children, however, money for school supplies may not be a priority.

My Project

In my classroom, during English Language Arts and Math, the students rotate into different stations. In these stations they must complete certain assignments, for example, they may be asked to complete a vocabulary tasks that is related to a novel we are reading. Some of the stations are group oriented, while some require independent work. The privacy partitions will enhance those stations which require independent assignments by allowing the student to remained focused on the task at hand. The privacy partitions are also a useful tool during quiz and test taking. Since my students are arranged in small groups of 4 to 6 students at a table, it would be helpful using the partitions to ensure the students are answering questions with their knowledge.
