My Students

The students I so humbly serve are amazingly resilient. They come from very impoverished households. They face many obstacles that many of us couldn't possibly imagine. I'm constantly in awe by their desire to persevere and let nothing get in their way of succeeding. For most of my students, English is their second language, so one of my biggest goals is to provide them with a strong phonemic awareness and phonics foundation, accompanied by a vast amount of vocabulary.

Regardless of the circumstances that they are in, my culturally-rich students come to school eager to learn, succeed, persevere, and have fun while doing it all!

They're incredible little human beings that will one day be productive citizens of this great nation! Until that day comes, I will do my best to provide them with the strong foundation that they require in order for them to be successful.

My Project

I've been teaching for roughly 15 years. Throughout those years, I have noticed that students get most excited about assignments, including writing, when they know that they'll have an arts and crafts project that will be produced along with the assignment. It's a great way to motivate students.

Art is gift that all children should experience several times throughout a school year to allow them to express themselves and enjoy school life.

We need colored pencils and construction paper for art projects. Art enriches the educational experience of students and improves overall outlook on school. When they know that they're going to be working on an art project, they don't want to miss school. It's a great motivator in addition to being a great tool to allow students to express themselves freely.
