My Students

My students have been affected by Hurricane Maria. We have new students arriving at the classroom that need extra support. The students at my school come from a working-class neighborhood that is very well integrated. They are every color of the rainbow and come from multiple backgrounds. One thing that they have in common is that many of their families are working multiple jobs and having trouble making ends meet.

Teachers, counselors, and other staff members frequently purchase basic need items for students who are not able to receive them from their families.

This school uses a program of catching students doing the right thing. There is an ongoing conversation about "being a bucket filler" by doing good things. They receive incentive "bucks" for good behavior and deeds.

My Project

With new students coming to my class from Puerto Rico and what better why to welcome a new class pet. Students will feel better about taking care of the classroom pet. With supplies, like food, a carrier, and toys to support a class pet gives them a chance to interact with something without having to understand any language.

Classroom pets can help students feel welcomed into the new area, school, and into the classroom.

Pets can be great friends, too.

All students need to feel welcomed and comfortable in my classroom. With new supplies for our new friends, I think students will be better adapted to my classroom.
