Being in a low-income/high poverty school district, students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, we are looking to keep things simple and provide students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
Students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to be engaged and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom the focus is on their potential and growth while they are in the classroom.
We may not be able to control their home lives, however, we can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, we are hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
