My Students

Teaching in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with multiple challenges, both in and out of the classroom. I want to create a space for them to thrive, learn, and feel comfortable and safe while at school. I always set them up to learn and push them more each day in fun and exciting new ways. I want to develop a classroom for my students to be creative and have meaningful, learning experiences, and to build lasting friendships.

My students are creative, active, and are always willing to put their best foot forward.

They are learning how to become independent. Spending so much time together, my students know they can depend on both myself, as well as their peers to help them along through the day. I cannot guarantee work will be completed at home, but I can make the most of the time we spend together in school. I try to create a desire to learn and try to get them to challenge themselves on a daily basis. We always try and realize that sometimes we make mistakes and we learn from our mistakes; however if we don't try, we cannot learn!

My Project

I have been fortunate to receive Chromebooks and computers for my classroom through generous donors. I have been using old headphones that do not always work. My kids ask me to help them so they can hear and it takes away from both their learning and my teaching when I am assisting them. I am looking to get 5 headphones for the desktop computers. I purchased 8 smaller ones for the Chromebooks, but they don't work as well on the desktop. I am also looking to get color charts in bilingual because many of my students are bilingual or just exiting the ESL program but still need support. I also would love to have the reading prompts chart so my students can refer to them when they are working and reading. The charts support the strategies taught during guided reading. These additions would improve the learning and self monitoring within my classroom.
