My Students

One of the best parts about my teaching job is the crazy joy, enthusiasm, and chaos that my students bring to the classroom each day. They come from incredibly diverse homes, and they bring that diversity to the classroom. The best part is that our students are all open to diversity, and they love to learn and share with others. They share willingly anything they have, and they are incredibly open to discussions about their differences and similarities.

My students are very curious about the world around them, but many do not have the financial resources to have access to anything but the basics.

Many of my students are the first generation of children going to school in America. Many other children are in homes where finances are a challenge. Because of that, our teaching staff works hard to find creative solutions to keep students moving forward.

We recently funded a food shelf in the building, and we now have backpacks of food that go home with students. We are always seeking ways to make sure students have what they need. You can help us make that happen!

My Project

My students are always curious about other countries, other cultures and other kids around the world. As I age, I am no longer in the cool stage where I know all of the popular trends, vocabulary and places. My kids want to know what other kids are doing and how they are living around the world. This project requests magazines that are focused on kids their age in French speaking countries around the world. I am also requesting two teaching units that will help me provide the cultural backgrounds for different countries around the world.

My students want to learn about their peers in other cultures, Allons-y is a magazine that is written at their level, in French, about kids in different cultures.

Having a current subscription will help my kids have the current vocabulary and trends that I miss out on.
