My Students

I teach in public school in the Bronx, not too far from where I grew up and went to school. My students remind me a lot of myself. They are eager, inquisitive, and have a passion for learning. Each day they come to school with a brightness in their eyes for knowledge and with curiosity to see what the new day will hold for them. They are so brave, so much has changed since I was their age and grew up in the surrounding neighborhood. They are my motivation and inspiration. They let me know that "darkness can't drive out darkness, only light can do that". They are the light.

My Project

In our second grade Social Studies curriculum students have been learning about different communities and the people who live there. Students researched the various unique characteristics, landscape, and geography of living in an urban, suburban, and rural area. After researching students were assigned groups that represented each community. While in groups students brainstormed their plan for their community and worked together to gather materials. As a culmination project students have decided to share their learning through various artistic approaches such as painting, drawing, building a model, and using technology to display each community. The goal of the project is to transform the school hallway into a world of different communities.
