My Students

We provide a safe, nurturing place where students can learn and feel respected. Our school consists of a very diverse population culture-wise. Almost half of our students go home to speak a native language other than English. We have a 95% free and reduced lunch rate. Our school is a project based school in which we work hard to integrate subjects through meaningful long-term projects. This next year I am going to have a "literacy booster class" (first one ever attempted at our school) and will have the majority of students two years behind grade level. Statistics show that 80% of students leaving 3rd grade below grade level stay behind the rest of their academic career. I am trying to change that statistic by giving students intensive literacy instruction in fourth grade to catch up.

My Project

Our grade level needs headphones to share for computer use. It is hard to concentrate if a neighbor is playing a game or listening to a video, - even on a low volume setting. Our school's headphones are inferior and many don't work anymore.

Our students deserve to work independently on the computer without distractions from others.

This is critical for students that have a difficult time focusing. Please help fund our headphones so our day runs more smoothly. Our current headphones are falling apart, and many only work on one side. These headphones will be shared within three classrooms.
