My Students

All students deserve the opportunity to be successful! There are almost two hundred English Language Learners in grades K-5 at my school. As an ESL teacher, my goal is to help these students develop English proficiency skills that will ensure their success in all areas. However, being an ESL teacher is more than just that. I work hard to make my students feel comfortable in a new environment, help them adapt to a new culture and school and also, encourage them to become strong bilinguals in the future. I try to boost their self esteem and morale as they make the transition into the United States so that they feel safe and ready to learn. I strive to teach my students to become confident, compassionate citizens of society, one lesson at a time. Any donation helps me reach their academic, physical and emotional needs.

My Project

These bilingual books and resources will allow new students to access text and continue to build upon reading comprehension skills in their first language. With so many Spanish speakers in my school, we need more Spanish and bilingual text for them to read and stimulate their academic development in their first language, while they begin to learn English as a second language. The writing and drawing supplies will allow my students to show their understanding of the texts and to express their ideas in creative ways. Many of my students come with limited English vocabulary and writing in their first language or using drawings helps them express their ideas clearly, even though they may not know English yet.

By donating to this project, you are helping my students build comprehension and express their ideas in creative ways!
