My Students

I have always been a firm believer of the quote, "It takes a village to raise a child." And being a classroom teacher I am constantly trying to provide my learners with the most beneficial, equitable education experience as I set the groundwork of their future. These multicultural learners are relying on the aid of a school community to guide them to achieve their full potential and I have been blessed to have the privilege to be their conductor for this ride!

I have been so fortunate to be a second grade ENL (English as a New Language) teacher of students who consistently rise to the challenge!

My students come from various nations ranging from Albania, Vietnam, Mexico, Dominican Republic and more. These students began second grade with very little understanding of the English language and grade level academics. In addition to the language barrier,​ I have several students with IEPs (Individualized Education Plans) to support academics and several with ADHD who even with focusing challenges break all barriers due to their drive to learn. Currently, these little go-getters are working hard to achieve all goals they set their mind to and I know that the sky is the limit.

My Project

In an effort to empower our students, The goal of this project is to transform their art into a treasure they can treasure. After designing their idea the goal is to transform their work onto fabrics, shirts, etc. This machine will enhance and support our school's curriculum. Giving the students the opportunity to apply their learning gives it a value that stays with them for years. A heat press machine will assist them in their creations.

Each student has their own talents and visions and it is going to be amazing to see their own work turned to art.

Their own creativity is the limit, which we are hoping to foster and encourage while they are still young and imaginative and a great opportunity to nurture this artistic side.
