My Students

My fourth graders want to be winners in life. They are determined to beat the odds stacked up against them! They are students at a high needs K-5 school in North Philadelphia. With 100% free breakfast and lunch, my students deserve a quality education. Many students have experienced setbacks and trauma but need to feel as if their life matters. They need to know that when they walk into my classroom that it is a safe, nurturing and loving environment. It is a special place for them to learn and receive an excellent education.

My Project

I tell my students that when they come to school they are working on their job. It is their responsibility to be invested in their learning every day. Having more flexible seating options with bean bag chairs and portable desks will provide students with more space to move around the classroom. This non-traditional approach promotes collaboration when students work in small groups in reading and during math. Students will use the sticky note chart paper to write ideas down in science to present to the class. The much-needed resources such as pencils, laminating pouches, and big notes will ensure students have everything they need for success in fourth grade.
