My students are hard working, perseverant, generous and caring. They come from different backgrounds, cultures, and circumstances and use their differences to support and learn about and from one another. They are passionate and truly care about their community, school and education.
I teach two dual language classes at a Title 1 school.
The dual language program is often over looked and underfunded in our city. My team and I are working tirelessly to create a meaningful and fulfilling bi-literacy program for our students who are mostly ELL's.
They work hard and persevere every day despite their circumstances. They are learning in two languages and are proud of the fact that they speak both English and español! I want to do everything in my power to ensure that they are receiving all of the materials and tools necessary to excel.
Research has proven that giving homework to students is not useful. The work is either too easy or too difficult and is rarely at their level. Because of this research we have determined that the best way our students can support their learning at school is by reading at home.
We want our students to be able to bring a variety of challenging texts to and from school to extend their learning.
In order for our students to do this we need protective bags for them to keep the books in.
Our curriculum has provided 13 bags for our students but we have a total of 34 students in the class. I want to ensure that each student gets a bag to bring home books in.
