My Students

I teach in a rural area where most of the children are below the poverty level and receive public assistance. Because of our high agricultural industry, many parents are migrant workers and move often to provide for their families. This fact alone puts many of our children at a disadvantage for learning. All the children at our school receive free lunches due to the majority of the median incomes that our parents have. However, these odds do not stop our children from wanting to learn.

My classroom this year has 18 children who are full of enthusiasm to learn.

I share their enthusiasm and want to provide the best education I possibly can.

My Project

Boogie Boards will eliminate the space it takes to store dry erase boards, dry erase markers, and erasers. Class time will not be lost looking for missing supplies or nonworking markers. These compact boards will benefit my classroom greatly! During small group the students will be able to quickly jot down answers to questions that I ask. These boards erase entirely with the push of a button and can be written on using the tip of their fingers. Most of my students struggle with holding a pencil. The boards will boost their confidence. Boogie Boards are definitely the dry erase of the future!
