My Students

I work at a school located in Chesapeake, Virginia. It is a Title 1 school were a large population get free or reduced lunch. The school works to provide a welcoming and stable learning environment for all it's students.

My students range in ages from 7 to 9.

They will be working to master many new skills this year, both academically and socially. My Students are all open minded and ready to learn when they come into my room. I am looking to help provide them with the best earning environment that I can to help promote their educational experience.

My Project

I would love to get the florescent light covers to help make the room seem less harsh. This will help the students experience a calmer educational environment.

I am going to use the storage container for their Math and Power up centers.

The students will be know exactly were to go and will not need to search for materials during their center or Power up time. This will give them more time on task.

The pouches will be used to ensure that all students working with teacher will have everything they need when they arrive at the table, this means less down time.
