My Students

I have the privilege of teaching English to students of other countries and cultures. They are an amazing group of students because they love to learn, they work hard, and they are just really splendiferous human beings.

Though they face many barriers to learning we are committed to helping them reach their full potential.

As the staff and educators at our school pour into their lives, we get to see them grow and accomplish new things. We can't wait to see them become successful, prosperous, contributing members of our community and country.

My Project

I am always looking for new ways to bring some excitement into my classroom and into learning. Students learn best when they move around and play games. Creating a gigantic size board game would be a unique way to engage students and increase learning. I could use this board to teach and review English vocabulary and many other concepts in a really fun way. This game would get students up, moving around and totally involved. I would be able to adapt this board game to any lesson.

Students can learn the hard way or the easy way.

By making learning fun they will learn whether they want to or not!

By donating to this project my English Language Learners will increase their academic, content and tier 2 vocabulary to help them become proficient and successful in school.
