My Students

I teach 210 amazing third, and fourth grade girls on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Many of my students are English language learners and children with special needs. Most qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. All of my students are creative, thoughtful, and eager learners, and much of their scientific knowledge this year will come from inquiry and research. It has been so exciting to see them fully engaged, each day, as they learn through collaboration and exploration with their peers.

My Project

My student love to come to school every day; full of life, ready to learn, and excited to create new positive and meaningful experiences with their classmates and peers. In their eyes, you can see hope, joy, and a thirst for love, understanding, and knowledge. Together, we set high expectations in our classroom believing that each one of them has the potential to succeed.My students have a strong passion for learning.

A collection of STEAM books will allow us to create a link between science, math, and reading which helps the students better understand the subject matter.

Having a large classroom library allows early students to find high-interest books at their reading level. Students will come to a classroom designed to foster the love of reading and create life long readers and learners
