My Students

I will be teaching first grade, bilingual students.

I love this age group because first graders are eager and ready to learn.

They desire to be engaged and they anxiously await to explore the world around them.

They love to sing, create, ask questions and explore, as they learn to read, write and do basic math.

I invite you to become a partner and a support system for my students, as we collaborate and invest together in their education and future.

My Project

Sometimes, students have difficulty focusing during the school day because they are hungry.

Your contribution and support in providing my students with a fast and easy snack, can make such a great impact in their learning.

They will be able to focus and stay energized to finish the school day on a happy note.

Many times, they come to school hungry and don't receive the proper nutrition because they don't like what's in front of them. As the school day goes on, they become restless and hungry and they need to be provided with a snack, so they may continue to learn and be successful in their academics.
