I teach at a Title 1 school with a population of about 650 students. My class is diverse which is reflective of my school. I have ELD students, students who are in resource part of the day, grade level learners, and kids who are very high academically. So, I must meet the needs of a broad range of abilities each day. I've taught at the same school for twenty six years. Our curriculum is rigorous and fast paced. I try to do a lot of art to balance the academics and have found that I can do a lot of teaching through art. My kids love to fill the classroom with bright artwork that reflects the curriculum. Some of my students love math and some love to read. Some love all academic areas and some are just trying to build the confidence in themselves to be the best student they can be. They make me proud to be a teacher.
