There are many students with different needs that I serve within my classroom. I have "at-risk" students, English Language Learners, migrant students, special needs and 504 students. There are various needs and I try to fulfill these to the best of my ability through personal funds, donations from friends and other gracious donors/grants. I have also created a student pantry to assist those students experiencing food insecurity. The need for funding especially in my department of Foreign Languages, is crucial as most content areas are federally funded, Foreign Languages are seen as electives courses despite of the fact that it has been proven that learning a second language, improves our cognitive skills. Needs in my department range from basic supplies to educational materials to flexible seating for special needs students in our classrooms.
