My Students

Students in my classroom come from low-income families in Chinatown and Manhattan in NY. My classroom is an ICT class with a mix of English Language Learners and students with disabilities. My students all have different learning needs and academic levels. It becomes difficult planning activities for them to work on individually or to collaborate in small groups.

Elementary school years are very important.

A strong foundation should be implemented for these students. My students' small accomplishments mean the world to them; it helps them boost their self-confidence and self-esteem.

My Project

We recently received two brand new classroom rugs for our front meeting area and back meeting area. However, we've noticed it gets dirty by the end of each day.

By having a vacuum and additional filters, we will be able to keep our classroom nice and clean for an optimum learning environment.

The vacuum and filters will keep our floors clear from paper and dust clutter, while the detachable part of the vacuum can help with smaller messes. By receiving the vacuum, the teachers and students can help out with the responsibility of keeping our classroom a clean learning environment and reaching our full potentials.
