My Students

My students walk into my classroom with wonder. They are ready to learn. I want to keep that excitement alive in them. To do that, I need to keep them engaged and wondering. I am a looping teacher and loop with my students from kindergarten to 1st grade.

I teach at a Title I school in Michigan where over 90% percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They love being in school because they feel safe and loved.

My Project

Whiteboards give us life! We use whiteboards every single day. We use them during reading, writing, and math. We use them to play games, practice spelling works, and work on difficult addition problems. We use them in the morning and afternoon. Whiteboards are a must for our day to day. Yet we have no funds to buy new ones. The whiteboards we have now have scratches, chips, and some of them are so bad you can’t even read what you’ve written.

Today a student of mine told me she would give me $7 to buy new whiteboards.

She just didn’t understand why we had to keep writing on them when they hardly worked. So I promised her I would try to get her some new whiteboards.
