My Students

My students come from a low socio-economic background in New York City. My school is a Title I school. My classroom is outside our school in a portable. My class is a special education class consists of 7th graders with various disabilities. My school is a K-8 school, and we share our building with another middle school. Their experiences in learning for fun have been limited due to our resources. This project will allow my students to enjoy learning so they can value their education and wear it at the same time!

My Project

These winter jackets and gloves will make a difference in my student's learning by not having to worry about being cold when they go outside. I have a lot of students who either do not have a winter coat or has one, but is too small.

This will be make a huge difference because my students' will feel so proud of their new winter coats and gloves that they won't have to worry about being cold on their way to school.

Minimizing these types of worries will have my students focus on what they need to focus on, which is their school work. Students in the seventh grade should not be worrying about whether they will be warm enough to walk to school.
