My Students

My students are energetic first graders that love exploring their learning. About 95% of the student population of our school is low income and English language learners.

The school is part of the dual language curriculum, meaning that the students are receiving both English and Spanish instruction and students that are native Spanish speakers and native English speakers are in the same classroom.

They love being introduced to new engaging and interactive lessons. They strive to become global learners in an ever-changing society through the use of critical thinking.

This year, my students have had an extra hardship to face when they were affected by Hurricane Harvey.

The community surrounding the school was deeply affected during this time and some of our students lost everything. As we continue to recover and grow throughout the year, the school has become most students' safe space where they can be worry free about obstacles they might face at home. Although these students are economically disadvantaged they strive for their best and don't let anything get in their way. Their goal is to be the best they can be no matter what comes their way. They work hard and are very deserving.

My Project

My school is a dual-language school in the Houston southeast area. Dual language here means that students receive instruction in English and Spanish with a 50-50 model of instruction, meaning 50% English and 50% Spanish learning and teaching.

As much as they love to read books in both languages, technology is crucial to our students’ success and learning.

My students love technology! They are Title I students who often do not have the resources for a computer or internet at home. We have 5 old Ipads in our room that frequently freeze making the usage sometimes difficult. Students are required to be on specific educational websites each day, which means much of our time is spent trying to initialize or trading Ipads.

Helping our project be funded would make my first graders specially excited to be able to read Spanish and English books on updated tablets.

Also, as I mentioned before, as a Title I school where almost 100% of students receive free breakfast and lunch along with the impact of Harvey last year many parents just don’t have the financial means to provide school supplies. The school and I try to do our best to provide and supplement what they need but we can’t always meet the demands. Students should come to school not worrying that they don’t have the materials to be successful. Also, they deserve a well-equipped environment with ample opportunities to develop their full potential

Each item requested will ensure that each student has access to essential materials and come to school well prepared and ready to learn.
