My Students

My average day in the classroom begins when I welcome my eighth-grade students including regular students, special education students, and students with emotional needs. I want my students to succeed.

My students like to participate in the school drama club which is why I sponsor this activity.

I teach in a large, diverse, K-8, high poverty school in an urban area that experiences crime. Our school receives Title I funding, and the entire school is eligible for free breakfast and lunch. The students come to school eager to learn from various living situations such as single parents, foster homes, homeless shelters, or extended family living.

My students are the most eccentric, funny, and smart kids you would ever want to meet. Skill levels and overall level of support vary by student. Some of my students require additional academic support, and some require additional emotional support. One thing that is universal is our desire to work together.

On the first day of school, we identified ourselves as a family. We are a family that takes care of one another and looks out for one another. This is what we do. We work together to accomplish our goals.

My Project

It has officially been determined that we will be teaching virtually to start the upcoming school year. Now comes the task of building an at-home virtual classroom and office. I want to ensure that my students have everything they need to continue learning and thriving at home!

My students will need an organized and prepared teacher; therefore, it is essential that I have all of my students work organized and sorted in neat portfolios.

This will be a challenging year for all, I want to make sure that everything I can do is done for my students. The folders will be assigned for each class, and each student will have a pocket. Each pocket will contain important documents pertaining to the child, and their graded work that has been completed, printed, and graded. Since I teach writing (and reading), I feel that writing assignments really need to be graded on paper, therefore, I can print their work, edit, and grade and then scan back to the student. The graded work will be filed in the folders.

Also, I need something to teach with! The whiteboard and easel will be displayed in my "home office" and I will use this as I am teaching and describing important elements of the lesson. The markers and erasers will help with this process. Finally, the most important part of this whole experience will be the technology. The computer case will keep the technology safe and protected so that daily lessons can occur as scheduled and learning will not be interrupted!
