My Students

My students are caring, funny, helpful and excited to learn new things each day. We are a dual language classroom in which we are learning not only to become bilingual, but also biliterate. We have a diverse group of learning needs and backgrounds. My goal is to build an environment that offers excitement, creativity, and choice! It might mean picking their best learning zone or seat, choosing a meaningful activity that allows them to explore STEM practices (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), or simply engaging in collaborative activities.

It's time to bring the "fire" back into learning because #KidsDeserveIt!

We are a low income Title 1 school (73% of our students receive free and reduced lunch) but that doesn't keep my class from working as hard as they can to become successful in their education. It only makes them want to work harder than ever. At such a young age, my students have big goals and dreams and I know they will do big things in life!

My Project

This carpet will provide a place for all my students to come together to collaborate and learn. Currently, our 5X9 classroom carpet is just too small to fit 27 little bodies.

Our morning meetings always begin together discussing our goals for the day, sharing experiences, practicing self-regulation skills, and learning about each other.

Throughout the day, my students love to read on the carpet with a buddy, work on collaborate tasks, and write stories. Our day ends as a team as we debrief our school day.

A classroom carpet will make our community stronger and help our learning to thrive.
