My Students

My students are an enthusiastic, ready to learn group of kids. There has never been a harder working group of students. They are always excited about the day and what it has in store for them.

I work in a large school with a high population of English Language Learning students.

We are also a Title I school and have many low-income families. One hundred percent of our families are provided free and reduced price lunch. Many of our families work several jobs, and students are up early attending before and after school programs, as well as coming to school still willing to give it their all.

Despite the challenges that many of my students face, they are here every day with a smile on their face waiting to see what they will learn. I want them to know that they are important and that I believe in them as students and learners. My students understand the value of hard work, but they need the tools and guidance to become the best people they can be.

My Project

By giving my students a subscription to TIME for kids, it will allow my students to have access to informational materials and texts that include high interest reading about the world around them. TIME For Kids will motivate my students to read as it includes articles that are targeted towards students' interests. It will also help them to practice literacy skills while helping students better understand their world. Students are also able to access online resources with this subscription. This helps my students to incorporate technology into their learning and reading, which provides engagement for those students that struggle to find interest in nonfiction text.
