My Students

As a teacher in a low-income and high poverty school, I see that my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of them have experienced trauma in their lives and have difficulty coming to school. They come to school with baggage that we can't even imagine, from witnessing domestic violence to not knowing where they are going to sleep at night. My classroom serves students with a range of disabilities; talented and gifted students, students with intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism spectrum disorder and students with high sensory needs.

Despite the many challenges they face, I strive to provide my students with creative, meaningful, and relevant learning experiences.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I provide my students with the love that they may not see at home. I remind my students of their potential. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

At our school many of the families are at or below poverty level. Many of the students have not had the opportunity to experience going to a science museum and seeing how incredible science can be.

Many of our families cannot afford to go to museums because they cost too and they simply cannot afford it.

This field trip will allow the students to have a fun hands-on experience with science and will be able to apply it to their reading, writing and math. Since we will be studying about the weather I would like for my students to have to opportunity to apply their learning with a hands-on experience.
