My Students

My students are gifted first, second, third and fourth graders in a low socio-economic area of North Texas. Our gifted program serves five elementary schools. These students come from varied backgrounds and cultures. They are talented, imaginative, and creative children; however, they all have one thing in common--they love to learn.

Some are talented young artists, others are future novelists, one of them may someday lead our country.

All of them will definitely need 21st-century skills when they leave public schooling and enter into the "real world."

My Project

The students in my class come from five different elementary schools and are bused once a week to receive gifted services. They have to transport all of their work and their organizer with them each week. This project would provide binders for one class of students.

These binders will provide all students with a binder to keep their work organized, as well as a student planner/calendar to work on their executive function skills.

Many of my students have difficulty with executive function (organizational) skills, so in addition to academics, each student has a planner/calendar to help them stay organized. This year many students lost theirs because they were just in a small paper folder. These binders would provide a sturdier place for them to store their work. Because I serve students for all of their elementary school years (first through fourth) the students would use these binders for four years!

Thank you for considering our project and for your support of public education.
