My Students

I teach in a low-income neighborhood school that was unfortunately in the Hurricane Harvey impact zone. Our community received over 50 inches of water in about a 24 hour period. Many of our students are English language learners which can be challenging. These students benefit from hands-on learning, which helps foster language acquisition and mathematics skills.

This year, before school started, Hurricane Harvey hit our area and water was in 80-90% of the homes in our town.

My children have very little to begin the school year with. I would like for them to have as normal of a school year as possible. I love teaching these children because they are eager to learn even with all the devastation, they have seen in their little lives.

My Project

This year Hurricane Harvey devastated our area dumping nearly 50 inches of water in my city over a 24-48 hour period. Many of the children I teach had water in their homes and are in the process of rebuilding. Despite the challenges of this year, my students have been resilient and have made great progress despite their circumstances,

The children in my classroom absolutely love books and the learning that comes from them.

I want to have lots of titles in my classroom so that they are able to choose from a variety. In addition, some of the titles I have chosen have information about specific issues we have in early childhood (tattling, blurting out etc).

These books will be invaluable in deterring some of these behaviors. I am always thrilled to read books to my class and would love to add these titles to my bookshelf. In addition, we would like to have a way to help organize out literature. The books and the organizer will be a welcome addition to our classroom.
