My Students

We are a school located in an urban community consisting of over 500 students, with all different ethnicities making up our school. We currently have 203 students identified as English Language Learners. In addition to the various ethnicities at our school, our students mainly come from a high-poverty background. One hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily.

My goal is to help my students build their educational foundation.

Students come to school each day with the knowledge that our classroom is a safe place to grow and learn together. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can to be college and career ready.

My Project

This u-shaped table will provide an area for small group instruction during class since small group differentiation is key to providing meaningful lessons. By adding this table to our classroom, we will create a better space to maximize instructional time by having the open space needed to show work.

This u-shaped table and chairs offer a new way to interact with students during small group instruction.

Having this new table will assure that my students have the ideal learning environment so that their knowledge can be shown and shared with the group. A kidney table would help the students get the most out of their small group time and make it possible for me to be able to reach and hold discussions with all kids at the table.
