My Students

The scholars I teach live in Southeast DC. Some students are not able to be cared for by their mothers due to drugs or lack of stability. Some students' fathers are not in their lives. Some students are raised by their grandparents and are just making it by. The thought that some of my kids are more so worried about eating or a chance to feel important says a lot. Each one of my students brings great personality to my classroom. They have learned to persevere at a young age and strive to always do their best. They are hard workers and they make my heart smile each and every day. I love my students and I want them to always feel important not only to me but towards themselves.

My Project

We need five Kindle Fire tablets and fun and exciting activities and materials for both reading and math! These materials will help my students by providing the proper materials to help teach my students and increase their academic level.

I will be using a lot of these materials when I teach in small group instruction to provide a lot of interaction with not only me as the teacher but their peers.

The students will love these hands on activities to grow their brain. The snap and slide number bond will help tremendously in the beginning of the year to create a foundation for the rest of the year. The cases for the tablets will be a great safety net to make sure all the tablets are able to last for not only now but for other students in the future.
