My Students

My students are the most resilient and strong group of students I have ever come in contact with. Our school was destroyed by a Tornado in October of 2019 and we were forced to move to another school further south 2 days later. Visiting the homes of some of my students who lost their electricity, clothes and even their homes opened my eyes to see just what kind of students I am teaching. As I walked through their neighborhoods to inform them of the new location of the school and the new bus routes, I passed out food and water to a hurting community. However when the students came to school the next day, I could not tell there was a lack. If I had not visited them, I would not have had any idea that they were in dire of need of the essential things we need to live. I am a Proud TJ English Teacher and I love my students because I know I am teaching the future that is already pushing through their setbacks as a community. I may not be able to provide a better home life for my students, but I promise a better school environment.

My Project

The materials provided from this project would allow my students to have enhanced visual learning. The items requested would provide a more organized and effective environment conducive for learning. They would allow me to target a variety of students that learn at different paces and need more modifications. The projector, clicker and mini white board would allow me to teach lessons while engaging with my students at their desk, while also providing extra information that would help them understand and complete assignments more effectively. With these materials, my classroom would be more engaging, more organized, and I would be more prepared to meet the needs of each and every one of my students both individually and as a collective group.
