My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Seventy-five percent of my students are on free or reduced price lunch. My school is a Title One school. This means we rely on donations and money from the government. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with many creative and meaningful learning experiences that they can use in and out of the classroom.

My Project

These science and math materials will continue to enhance the learning environment that these low income students deserve. I strive for learning excellence in my classroom. The products that I have listed will help my students by giving them hands -on access to different experiences they may not get the chance to do at home. All my students love learning through play. The science labs will let them build and play in a fun and exciting way. The math materials will let them learn through hands-on activities that will allow the brain to learn at the same time. The items that I have listed will assist with learning some of the hardest concepts in the third grade classroom.
