I am a sixth and seventh grade Math teacher in the Bronx, where all of my students receive free lunch and breakfast. My students come from extremely poor neighborhoods, where they see failure and need each day. My students lack the motivation to work hard because they do not see how education will help them succeed in life. Because this motivation is so difficult to generate in students, especially when they are rarely receiving it at home, I would like to have constant reminders in the classroom to build a culture of achievement and motivation amongst my children. I would like to hang up 2 motivational posters in the classroom. These motivational posters would serve as a daily reminder to students what they are working towards, and that their goals and dreams can be accomplished, if they continue to work at them. I plan to refer constantly to these posters - one entitled “teamwork” and the other entitled “keys to success”. I hope that the posters will help provide something that does not get reinforced by my students' lives outside of school. Today New York Schools are forced to focus much emphasis on test scores, and the students' anxiety is built up but their self- confidence is brought down. I truly believe these posters will help build up my students' self-confidence and belief in themselves, which will cultivate a desire and a motivation to succeed. I hope that you will be able to help make my dream possible and cultivate the great minds of our city's future.
