My Students

My first grade students are good kids who come from difficult circumstances. Poverty, learning English as a Second Language, and no one at home who can help them with their school work are a few of their daily challenges.

A large number of the students at our school, 89% to be exact, receive free or reduced price lunch.

Although we have high levels of poverty, you would not know it from walking on campus and meeting the children. Despite their challenges in life, our students continue to achieve academically every year. In fact, we were honored as a State Distinguished School. My goal, as their teacher, is to help my students reach their full potential, despite their hardships.

My Project

My students need exposure to the world around them, the world in which they live, the world they will someday run. TIME for Kids is an amazing magazine that can enrich each student's outlook on their life and the world.

TIME for Kids is a wonderful way to open my student's minds to the world around and let their imaginations grow.

My students, who are learning to read, will be able to listen to the articles online and still participate in class discussions and activities. It gives the students a different way of looking at the information and helps them understand it better. The whole world will be available at their fingertips. The most beautiful sight is to see them reading with their heads buried in Time for Kids!
