My Students

My classroom consists of 20 eager students who are passionate and driven to learn. I'm looking to build strong literacy skills in my scholars so they have strong foundational skills on which to build in years to come.

Hurricane Maria has greatly impacted our school community.

There are several students who are learning a new language for the first time. I need the necessary tools to help bridge those language gaps and become a more effective teacher for those students.

My school has one of the largest bilingual populations in Orange County. We have welcomed many displaced students from Puerto Rico. Many students are learning and reading in English for the first time.

My Project

I am asking for several Lakeshore Learning Math, Listen & Learn, and Reading centers that will enable my students to reinforce phonemic awareness to boost reading fluency and reading confidence, teach letter recognition and sound, phonics and basic math and science skills.

These new centers would allow me to offer my students more efficient and academically engaging ways to explore new knowledge across several different subjects and support a cooperative learning environment.

My students will benefit from the addition of new centers by allowing them to explore Math and Reading in new and more exciting ways. The addition of new listening center materials will allow for the integration of technology into my classroom which is directly aligned with the 21st century learning environment.
