My Students

I am a teacher of 6th-8th grade students. All of my students are diverse learners. They have special needs ranging from mild learning disabilities to social/emotional difficulties. I teach math and science. My kids are from a working class, low-income area. We are a very family-oriented school and have great family involvement.

We can grow in our learning if we just have our needs met.

Any extra materials or technology received by my class offers the students a more enriching education.

My Project

For this project I am asking for winter essentials for our neediest students. These are are much needed in our cold Chicago winters. Those essentials include winter hoods, hats and gloves. Several students will truly enjoy this items as many actually sat with me and picked out items they would like. They want hats/hoods that cover their faces for playing outside in the snow.

Trying to ensure my students arrive to school warm is a priority for me.

I know the students and their families are in need of assistance with these items. Help bring a smile to my students' faces.
