My Students

I teach the most amazing group of fourth grade students in the world! I teach in a school district that, like many others in our area, is feeling the economic crunch. We are at close to 50% with our free and reduced lunch populations and find ourselves meeting the most basic needs of students daily. Needs that extend beyond the classroom. We send food bags home for students on the weekends, offer free school supplies, hair cuts, clean clothes, social and emotional counseling, and so much more. Our students, my students, are my life.

I want the students that step through my door each day to know they are loved, valued, and genuinely cared about.

They are my world and I want to offer to them every experience I can possibly deliver. I want to inspire them to rise above the struggle and strife. I want them to see the bigger picture in life. I want them to ask questions, demand answers, and when they aren't satisfied with the world around them, I want them rise up and change it!

My Project

For this project, I chose Time for Kids weekly magazines. My classroom is made up of movers and shakers. These movers and shakers need a way to discover and investigate the world they live in without being overwhelmed. My students will be able to use the magazines to talk about issues that plague the very classroom they sit in each day. Food allergies, technology integration, healthy living, and politics.

My students feel so deeply connected to the happenings in their world.

Time for Kids helps connect students to real-world issues in an age appropriate and parent-approved way. We can debate issues, question the world around us, and inspire change through these magazines.
