Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

Our school is a middle school of approximately 410 sixth, seventh, and eighth-graders. About 70% of our students receive free or reduced-rate lunch. At 50% Hispanic, 20% African American, and 30% Caucasian, we are a diverse school community.

As a Title I school, our financial resources are limited, and creativity within the classroom environment is essential to tap into each student's individual learning style.

Providing the best learning environment and classroom experiences have been my mission as a science teacher over the last 16 years. I enjoy my students' enthusiasm and love of learning!

My Project

This pandemic continues to take its toll on students' mental, emotional, and social well-being. We have hosted Board Game clubs here at our school pre-pandemic for this very purpose. Now, more than ever, students need to grow and keep up these skills for their own sake as well as the sake of those around them.

Help my students grow socially-emotionally and continue to not just survive but thrive during this pandemic by playing board games!

Renature, as well as the Marvel United Superhero Cards games, are both cooperative, whereby players work together to win against the game itself. The Mexican Train dominoes will be a great, classic edition to our collection. These will all be available for students to take home and play with their families!
