My Students

One of the biggest obstacles students face in high school is keeping organized. Ask them to open their notebooks and you're liable to find chemistry homework from last semester next to yesterday's class notes on the play Macbeth.

I currently teach English at a high-needs school, where 95 percent of the students qualify for the free/reduced lunch program.

My students, in general, do not have the money for even the most basic school supplies. In my 14 years of teaching at public schools in New York City, I've learned that students who do not keep organized tend to fall behind.

My Project

In order to combat this problem and teach my students good organization and note-taking skills to prepare them for college and the world beyond, I am requesting notebooks (one for each student). Students will use this composition notebook to write their essays and revisions, for vocabulary study, and for classwork. Having a dedicated English notebook will not only help students become more organized, a skill that will be utilized throughout their lives, but will enable them to take ownership of their work. This, in my opinion, is invaluable. The pens and pencils will also help students who misplace theirs get back to work quickly.

Organization is an important key to ensuring success in school and in life.

With your help, we can get these bright, young students organized and on the road to success!
