I believe every child deserves the opportunity for an excellent education, and I am proud to partner with my school, other educators, families, and community leaders to strive toward this goal. I teach in a high poverty school zone in which 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. These amazing students need additional support because most of them come from low-income single family households of which many have little to no support or resources. Despite some of the challenges they face in and around their environment, every year my students come to school excited, full of life and eager to learn.
As the 2019 Teacher of the Year and an alumni of Metro Atlanta Teach for America, I choose to continue to significantly impact the life trajectories of students in our region’s high-need communities.
My students use dry erase markers multiple times a day! They practice letter formation, write numbers, and write words. They practice labeling pictures on their whiteboards as well. We often use our whiteboards during both whole group and small group. Clearly, we will use these materials often in our classroom!
Due to budget restrictions, it is difficult to get a class set of dry erase markers for my students.
These markers would be used to the fullest extent in my classroom!
By receiving a large supply, we will have extras for when old markers dry out and my students in future years will benefit as well.
