My Students

I am a fifth grade ELA and Social Studies teacher in Queens, NY., and am fortunate enough to work with spectacular students who are so full of spirit and excitement for learning. I work with students from a wide range of social, emotional, and economic backgrounds. My students have varying learning needs, and each student requires different academic resources in order to attain grade-level standards. I want to provide them with the items they need in order to help maximize their learning potential.

My Project

Our 5th graders are switching classes for the first time ever, in order to get them ready for middle school. This presents a few challenges, but nothing we can't handle.

A mobile book borrowing cart will be a fabulous addition to the grade so teachers can share books and resources.

Students will also be able to place their resources in them while we move the cart from class to class. At times, teachers also need to switch rooms, and this would allow for them to place their "classroom on a cart" and share their wealth of resources with all their classes, not just their homeroom class. Since many of the students are special needs, it will greatly benefit those students in regards to organization and keeping a piece of their classroom with them as they switch.
