My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

Many of my students are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My preschool classroom is a busy place. It is also one that requires a lot of materials for little learners. With all these materials, it gets difficult to find homes for everything. My bigger concern is finding homes for the materials my students use daily that are accessible to them.

My students need to be able to access the materials they need easily.

I have lots of spaces I can put things, however, not many that are within the students reach which is against head start regulations. I would love to have this storage cubby to store the students' materials in an easily accessible place that they can get and return needed material quickly. This storage cubby will allow for smoother transitions during our daily lessons as well as small group instruction time. In addition, it will help to eliminate clutter in the classroom.
