My Students

Students at my school come from a working-class neighborhood that is very well integrated. They are every color of the rainbow and come from multiple backgrounds. One thing that they have in common is that many of their families are working multiple jobs and having trouble making ends meet.

Teachers, counselors, and other staff members frequently purchase basic need items for students who are not able to receive them from their families.

This school uses a program of catching students doing the right thing. There is an ongoing conversation about "being a bucket filler" by doing good things. They receive incentive "bucks" for good behavior and deeds.

My Project

With moving to a new classroom we will need many new random supplies to refill what I don’t have. We need new border and letters to create bulletin boards. Students need name tags to label the desks. The students and I will need chalk markers to write on the board as my old one was dry erase. Students will use sharpies to label items and for other activities in the classroom. Students will need post-it notes for social studies and science activities. In my class, we would like to recycle; with a paper shredder, we can do that. We will use the shredded paper for our classroom pet rat. I’m happy, students can be helpful, the rat can snuggle and there will be less trash. Students will need sheet protectors for storing their work. We also need color coding labels to label our classroom books.

With all these new supplies, students will be able to function in my classroom and be ready to learn.
