My Students

As a first-year teacher, I have the pleasure of working with 18 beautiful and bright bilingual students! My students are hard-working, responsible, and determined to succeed! Our school is a Title I school, which limits us to the resources available to us.

Despite the challenges they face daily, our students come to school ready to learn!

We are in a dual immersion classroom and feel so grateful to be able to learn in Spanish and English everyday. My students know that their knowledge of two languages will benefit them in the long run.

I want my students to know that anything is possible with hard work. My students are in the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program! All of my students know that after high school, comes college! Please help us continue that motto by helping enhance our classroom environment.

My Project

As an avid learner, I have witnessed first hand how important a snack can be to staying focused. When we get hungry it can be hard to think about anything else. The last thing a student should worry about is food. It can interfere with learning and make it hard to focus, especially during testing!

I want my students to have snacks, like crackers, fruit snacks, and pretzels, in order to help them stay fueled and ready to do great on their testing this year!

These snacks will be available before testing, so that those who might've not had anything to eat, or not enough, will be able to have something before starting the test. They will also get snacks during their breaks and recess. This will help to ensure they are ready to learn.
