My Students

My students are incredible. Being part of an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) school community has helped my students grow into incredibly caring, reflective, and empathetic individuals who want to make the world a better place through inquiry and action. Every day, my students are working on developing their understanding of universal concepts like reflection, perspective, and responsibility.

My school is an incredibly diverse place, and this diversity makes it a unique, vibrant place for students to learn and grow.

Students are from a range of backgrounds. Some come from low socioeconomic backgrounds, while others are living in more financially secure households. About a third of my students are Latino; another third are black or Somali; another third are white. About a third of my students are English language learners (ELLs). Many are considered advanced learners in need of advanced differentiation.

My Project

At the beginning of each school year, I like to gift each student with a water bottle. Students' faces light up as they walk into the room on the first day of school and receive this special gift. The water bottle helps students stay hydrated throughout the year, and it also reduces interruptions, as students generally need to get up throughout the day to get drinks.

In this project, I am requesting 10 water bottles in order to ensure that each student is able to pick out a water bottle at the beginning of the year.

I have some left over from last year, which is why I am not requesting a full class set.

I am also requesting some string lights, as well as replacement bulbs. I plan to put these up in the room to create a calming environment. We already have one string of these up in the front of the room, and the students love them. They really are relaxing.
