My Students

My students are incredibly curious and determined learners. They love to ask questions, explore answers and become experts. Unfortunately, they face many obstacles that make it hard for them to keep focus on their learning and reach their potential. Poverty, language barriers and homelessness are all issues that my students deal with even though they are just in 4th grade.

In our classroom, we strive to be a safe and inclusive community that encourages each others learning and individuality.

It is within our community that they find a safe space where they can get breakfast, lunch and an enthusiastic staff that encourages them to challenge themselves and persevere.

My Project

Having weekly news magazines like Time for Kids and Scholastic News that are written specifically for 4th graders will be a great asset in my classroom. It will allow for discussion of current events that lead to a wider understanding of how the content we study connects to the world around them.

My curious learners will be able to read about the world around them and discuss issues that are important and of interest to them.

My students will also be able to practice strategies with non-fiction text, such as identifying text structure, identifying main ideas and determining supporting details.
