My Students

We are an integrated collaborative teaching (ICT) first-grade class, with a mixture of general and special education students at a high-needs, Title I school in the Bronx. While the majority of students come from low-income homes or from homes with limited parental involvement, they are enthusiastic and come to school every day ready to learn. They see school as a consistent part of their daily lives and love to make me proud.

My first graders are some of the happiest children I have ever had the pleasure of working with; they inspire me to provide the best education I can for them.

My Project

In our school, we have so much to be proud of as a learning community and so much to look forward to doing. Whether it is concerts, celebrations of learning, student-led conferences, field work or an event like the multicultural celebration, there are a variety of ways that our students learn about the world around them. In this project, my class will be performing a dance from Eastern Europe for the school. We are requesting seven costumes for the girls and seven for the boys. The flower wreath crowns are an important part of European culture and will be used to adorn the girls heads as part of their attire.

My students will be fully immersed in this experience by wearing these costumes and it will help them learn about a culture different from their own, thus broadening their background knowledge and also exposing them to a world beyond their classroom.

Through performing, they will also be educating other classes about a different culture! These costumes will help the experience come alive!
