My Students

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." -Vince Lombardi.

This school is a middle city school with students from many different economic and cultural backgrounds.

My students are asked to provide supplies that might be financially hard for them to get. Our school is a Title I school, and every donation goes a long way. Our students are driven to always do their best, but they struggle. They need financial and emotional support from their community to help them meet their true potential.

My Project

We have a few months of school left and I am noticing a few patterns with my students. One, they are still bringing their hoodies even though its entirely too hot for them. They are also bringing their umbrella's and they have no place to set them in my room. I need a coat rack for their personal items and the umbrellas I have to hand out to them.

My students spend a lot of time at the end of the year working on math projects on the computer.

They need earphones so they can listen to the you tube documentaries about their topics, or just their own music. They love having that type of responsibility.

Lastly, as the school year wraps up, I need to store all of my supplies. Please help me keep my class clean and organized for the next year of math students! Thank you so much for all your support!
