My Students

My classroom is a special education as well as an intervention class for all levels of students in the school. I have been charged with dramatically improving student math and reading scores by the end of the school year and bridge the achievement gap. The school is a magnet school in an urban setting that serves students of various ethnic backgrounds and socio-economic statuses. 100% of my students receive free and reduced-price lunch. Students go home to various responsibilities at home including caring for younger siblings and preparing family meals. They also have a variety of disabilities (some more than one), which impacts their ability to access the general education curriculum without additional supports (specialized instruction and accommodations and modifications).

My students are hardworking and want to do well.

However, due to COVID-19, they now need to access their learning online, and they are lacking the materials to do so.

My Project

This gift card will be used to purchase digital resources created by other teachers. These teachers are much more skilled than I am at recreating digital versions of materials and resources that I would use if I were in person. They are much more user-friendly for my students to navigate.

My students are frustrated by how difficult virtually learning is, and they miss the materials we used to use.

It would really lift their spirits up and help increase their engagement if they were able to access digital materials and resources they are already familiar with.

Since we will be learning virtually for the foreseeable future, I would like to try to re-engage my students as soon as possible to get them back on track. Using these digital resources from the Teachers Pay Teachers website will allow me to do just that, and also give me time to focus on other ways to engage my students instead of spending countless hours trying to create the digital content myself.
