Mrs. Montijo’s Classroom Edit display name

  • More than half of students from low‑income households

My students love to write fiction and nonfiction stories and reports. Writing opens every student's creative mind. The only thing that we are lacking is our dictionaries! I teach second grade at a low income Southern California elementary school. Many of my students are children of military enlisted. Most have moved one or more times and have had their education disrupted due to military transfers. Also, many are second language learners who need extra support. With budget cuts these past years, there has been no money to assist teachers in replenishing their classroom libraries, and no funds for a school librarian. However, my students still need the support of dictionaries to better their writing skills.
