My Students

My students amaze me every day! Although they are young, some of them have had to shoulder a lot of responsibility and change in their lives already. They don't let their misfortunes deter them. They are determined, they are bright, they are inquisitive and they are loved!

I teach at a Title One school in Arizona.

Most of my kids are on free or reduced lunch. Many of my students either only have one parent at home, or both parents have to work so they can make ends meet. I have several students who need extra help with academics, several who are English language learners, and several who are high achieving and need to have their learning fostered at a higher at a higher level.

My Project

My students need items such as the division wrap-ups and the loose leaf paper to help learn different division strategies. We practice basic division and long division all year long! The expandable sphere will be used to help my students who get overwhelmed with new information, learn to focus and breathe. Sometimes, students need a brain break to be able to focus on their learning and the sphere will do just that. The chime will help keep my students on task and focused as well.

In order for my students to feel successful they need to have the right tools available to them.

I would like to provide the world to my students. For now, I'm just trying to provide basic necessities to help re-teach concepts to some students, and enrich the learning of those who need it!
