While I love my school and I have a passion my district, I have to admit the lack of resources prove to make our job as teachers very challenging. In our school, we receive 1 pack of dry erase markers, 12 sticky note pads, a bottle of hand sanitizer, and a case of paper-- for the entire year. My students need more resources than that. They need printer ink, access to technology, markers, pencils, notebooks, laminate sheets, books-- you name it, they need it.
With this funding, I plan on buying resources to push my students to their fullest potential. I plan on creating interactive reading and math notebooks. I plan on buying materials to implement STEM projects and give my students real life access to science experiences-- not just a youtube video on my laptop. I also plan on using these resources to give my students access to technology-- something they do not have at this time. I believe in my students. I believe they have the ability to rise up and break the crushing chains of poverty-- they just need a quality education to do it. #DCPSRising
