Our district is a destination district for the international community. My elementary is a Title I school. Last year alone we had two refugee families join our school with six kids in total. We welcome all families of all backgrounds and embrace each other's cultures. My school is comprised of 50% of families that are in poverty, 34% of our students are Indian/Asian and 60% of our school are EL (English Language) learners who all receive extra language support. These students are all at different places on their journey of learning English ranging from Non-English speaking to speaking several other languages fluently. Some of my students have just moved to America and my classroom is the first classroom they have ever stepped foot in. My priority is to ensure all of my students feel loved and are welcomed into a warm, comfortable environment each and every day. Ours is a vibrant and connected community that strives to meet each of its unique learners' needs academically, socially and emotionally. This donorschoose.org project will help us reach our goal one student at a time.
My students and I have embarked on a new way of teaching - virtual teaching. I am constantly on virtual video calls with my students, talking them through assignments and also creating engaging online lessons. Being able to use the headphones to help with this online, virtual teaching would be so helpful!! Please consider donating. When we get back into the classroom I’d love for the book boxes in my classroom library to be labeled. I’ve worked so hard on organizing the bins but they need a label that will stick! Thanks so much for your consideration!!
