My Students

Students who live in poverty have so many things going against them and this class is no exception. Our school has a 63% poverty rate. There is little outside support, as this community is trying to support themselves as well. No matter where my students come from, they all show such resilience and they see the value of being at school. They see the value and I want to hold up my end of the bargain by giving them a rich, safe learning environment.

This school has set, and is succeeding with, the goal to show these students that "poverty only exists outside of these school walls.” All of my students are exposed to a rich learning environment and given the love and support they don't always get on weekends and afternoons.

Despite what research has shown about students in poverty having a higher rate of truancy, I am actually seeing the inverse, with students wanting to come to school and making it happen.

My Project

Our classroom budget doesn't allow enough for student storage materials. The Help Yourself Book Bins and the Connect and Store Book Bins will be an answer to our storage needs.

Our students don't have a solution for storing their notebooks, binders, and loose papers in an efficient way.

We use tables instead of desks, so the students are sharing work spaces. Sometimes their materials flow into another students' workspace causing much wailing and gnashing of teeth from all parties involved.

These Book Bins will allow students to store their binders, notebooks, and their papers in a vertical storage container, saving valuable workspace on the tables, and saving the students from having to clean up after each other.
