My Students

My students have a great desire to be successful academically. They strive daily to do their best, despite many troubling factors they may face everyday. Nearly one hundred percent of our students receive free lunch and live each day facing hardships we can't imagine.

Despite extreme poverty, our future leaders, my students, truly enjoy technology and look forward to coming to school to access and utilize technology.

My students are a joy to work with and they participate in classroom discussions daily and work well in groups and independently.

My Project

My students come to school each day excited and eager to learn. However, there are many of them who do not come to school with the necessary needed items to complete daily assignments. Having some paper, pencils, and dry erase boards would provide a significant impact for my students education.

When teaching my students strategies to complete math problems, having dry erase boards, markers, paper, and pencils will be a tremendous help to them.

Since many of my students struggle academically and live in poverty, they may come to school without the proper school supplies. Therefore having supplies on hand for the students, will provide a tremendous help for the students.
