My Students

My third graders attend a public school in an urban district. It is a Title I school, and 100% of the students qualify for a free or reduced-price lunch. Coming from an urban district and a Title I school, unfortunately, my students do not have as many supplies and opportunities as the surrounding districts. Many of my students come from single family homes with multiple siblings and many are newly located due to the devastating hurricanes in Puerto Rico. This year, I have 20 inquisitive and eager students, many of whom are not on grade level, English Language Learners or LTSS students, who are always ready to learn.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, most of My students are missing that secure, loving, consistent presence that school provides.

They are missing friends and teachers. Just this week my class has transitioned to 100% online learning. 50% of my class needed to borrow a technological device from the district in order to participate. My goal is to make their online school experience meaningful but fun all while providing a safe, loving experience from a far.

My Project

My students are full of energy and their creativity shines through in all of the work that they do. They soak up everything you put out.

My goal is to make their online school experience meaningful but fun all while providing a safe, loving experience from a far. I want them to know that the can succeed in any environment no matter their circumstances. I also want them to have a sense of comfort. We will be having Google Meets going forward and I would love to be able to read a book aloud during our time together and let them see the pictures. The Hue-HD camera will allow me to read the book while they can see the pictures. The monitor riser will allow for a better angle so the students aren't constantly looking up my nose. LOL I cant wait til we can see each other face to face! Both of these items will help that be a little more seamless and productive.
