My Students

I teach a wonderful group of caring students with amazing capabilities and talents. Like any campus, my students are very diverse. We are comprised of English language learners, special education and general education students, who come from low-income and middle-class families. Despite their differences, they are like one big happy family, caring for each other.

My students love to learn and flourish when they are able to work together and have the opportunity to express themselves and show their creativity while learning.

As a teacher, I enjoy nothing more than giving my students the opportunity to demonstrate their learning through group projects such as making posters, designing bulletin boards and giving presentations. Projects like these allow my student opportunities to sharpen their leadership skills and prepare them for the 21st century.

My school is a new Leader in Me campus.

My Project

My students enjoy doing a lot of hands on activities and incorporating technology when they have the opportunity. Working in groups allows each student to shine as their various skills and talents are needed. They will be creating posters, decorating bulletin boards, and creating banners for our classroom. Activities like this allow my students to create a classroom that represents their personalities and what they are learning. The Cricut bundle will be used by my students for group and individual projects throughout the year. Through your funding, you are helping my students to use their creativity as they work and learn together.
