My Students

My students walk into my class every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I love to challenge them and see their faces when they achieve what they thought that they couldn't. Each day I want them to know how smart they are and that I believe in them.

I teach at a Title I school in Georgia, and we are CHAMPIONS!

Despite set backs and hardships, my students come to class eager to do their best and achieve greatness. I love them and want to get the best things possible for them!

My Project

My students need a new class set of headphones and a subscription to TIME for Kids News Magazine. Students are always encouraged to bring their own headphones, but most are not able to do so. They aren't able to enjoy technology to it's fullest without these headsets. These headphones will receive daily use in multiple ways. I will use them to differeniate learning and supplement instruction.

My students also need to have access and exposure to TIME For Kids News Magazines.

This subscription will allow my students to have access to nonfiction text in a real world context. With the headphones and the magazine subscription my students will be successful during small group time.
