My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty area, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Every child in our school receives free or reduced lunch, and a large percentage of students are considered homeless. Despite this, my students are excited be part of a learning community where they feel safe and cared for.

Our classroom is an area where students are encouraged to work hard, collaborate with one another, and communicate clearly.

I encourage learning through exploration and value the intrinsic curiosity of my students.

My Project

We need new balls, jump ropes, hula hoops, and chalk to keep recess active and engaging! Recess is a time of play, competition, communication, and FUN! However, my students are not able to fully explore new activities, form relationships with other students who may be interested in the same activities, and express themselves through play due to the lack of sports and play equipment.

When asked what could make their day more fun and get them more excited about coming to school, my students quickly told me they wanted new balls, jump ropes, hula hoops, and chalk.

As a teacher, that is a simple request I believe can be fulfilled to grow our classroom community. Please help my students keep their bodies as active as their brains already are!
