My Students

Hello, I am a fourth year teacher here at my school. I am working in the 5th grade and have a classroom that could use a little extra love. My students live in a high poverty neighborhood and they come to school with diverse minority backgrounds. Ninety percent of my students are on free or reduced lunches. All of them are non Caucasian, either being African American or of Hispanic descent. Most of them come hungry to school every day and look forward to coming to school for daily essentials of life as well as for their love of learning. I want to make school their safe place, where they enjoy coming every day.

With a wide range of personalities and learning levels in my classroom I want to give the students all the necessary support I can.

Despite all of their economic hardships, these students arrive ready to learn and they seek out ways to connect with the teachers and community members in the building. Being out of the building for nearly 18 months they arrive eager and ready to learn!

My Project

This project will help me be able to purchase items that will give the students access to extra practice activities that will best fit their needs. I will be able to find other resources that best suite the needs for my students through this website and allow them to grow in areas that they may be struggling in. This website will also allow for work to be digital and print versions which helps all types of learns and in case of any type of true emergency we are able to continue working and keep students on track! Teacher Pay Teacher gift cards are the best!
