My Students

I am fortunate to teach in a school that is growing and diversifying daily! We have students rapidly moving into the district from every race. It's very exciting for us to become a true multicultural community. In a country where tension is high and divisions among races are becoming defined, I have the opportunity to teach 150 of my students that all people are equal and valuable.

Learning another language and culture, particularly Spanish, gives my students a new sense of appreciation and respect for others in our community and around the world.

They gain the ability to communiticate with so many students in our school and also those beyond our community. The more my students learn about other cultures and languages, the more their horizons are broadened. My students are becoming people of character, people who value others, and people who embrace diversity.

My Project

We know students learn vocabulary through use, not through vocabulary lists. Thus students need to be reading, a lot! The problem? I have no simple, understandable books in Spanish!

With these novice level books, I will build my Spanish classroom library!

Our public library and school library have few books in Spanish, but our students will not learn to read without actually reading. I have chosen books that are high interest and comprehensible for my students. I want them to pick up books that give them pleasure and build their confidence in the language. This grant will enable me to provide them a variety of choices to help their language skills grow.
