My Students

Contreras Elementary is a regular program and dual language school that serves students from diverse backgrounds. I am honored to work with such amazing students who love to learn new things!

I spend my day with students who deserve to have the same opportunities as others.

My students don't realize that they are at a Title 1 school and that there is a reason why they get 100% free lunch. All they know is that they want to learn so that they grow up to be someone important in life. They strive to do their best and I strive to serve them to the best of my ability. It devastates me to know that we could be doing so much more if we just had the means. I know that I can't support my students financially but what I do know is that I can be a voice for them.

My Project

As the month of February approaches and we think of love and friendship we thought what better book than Wonder. A novel about showing kindness to others and being accepting of our peers just the way they are. We are all special in our own kind of way. This project was inspired by the world wide capturekindness project.

We are beginning our own bekind project in our classroom that will help reinforce classroom community.

The novel set will help students follow along while they practice reading skills during read alouds such as but not limited to: word skills, fluency, inferencing, and comprehension. While practicing all these skills they will also be discovering the underlying theme of KINDNESS! I am excited to read the book as we will be culminating by asking parents to take them to watch the movie and comparing and contrasting how the book and movie are alike and different. I would love to give my students an opportunity to fully engage with the book by having their own copy while in my class.
