My Students

English, Spanish, Urdu, Portuguese, Romanian, and Vietnamese are some of the languages that my ESL (English as a Second Language) students speak. My school goes from Pre-K through 8th grade, but I primarily work with the students in kindergarten, 1st grade, and 4th grade. Our goal is to prepare all students to be successful and lifelong learners. We also strive to make sure that our students are college and career ready. How am I going to prepare my students to be college and career ready if we do not have the proper materials and supplies to get there?

My Project

Some of our students bring in supplies at the beginning of the year and some of the students are only able to afford some of the supplies they need. Teachers always make sure they have tons of extra supplies for those students who don't have any. This year, not many of our students brought in supplies, so our go-to items are running out.

Didn't you have all the classroom materials you needed when you were in school?

My students need pencils with erasers so that we aren't borrowing pennies from another classroom. My students also need pencils so that they can keep some in their school bag for when they go home and need a pencil to do their homework. My students also need dry erase markers and erasers. My students and I love to do work on the dry erase boards, but my students are constantly having to share markers and erasers because we do not have enough of them for everyone. My students need these basic supplies so that we are not having to interrupt their academic time to find pencils or dry erase markers because we do not have many.
