My Students

My students come to me full of ideas and excited to learn new things. My students do not often come with the basics being met, like food and school supplies. My school provides 100% of the students with free breakfast and lunch; we must first feed the body before the mind.

I work hard to provide my students with the basics they need to be successful inside and outside of academic settings.

I teach my students to think about the big picture before acting and how to hold themselves responsible for the choices they make. I want my students to develop habits that they can use their whole life through.

My Project

Every year it feels like there is more and more that students have to learn and master. If there isn't more to learn, the students have to learn the material sooner. The best way for my students to learn this material and make sure it stays, is to learn it like the kids they are. The best way for kids to learn is to have fun and what's more fun of a kid than playing games. These games will have students focusing on just the beginning sounds before the ending and middle sounds. From their sounds my students can move to learning vocabulary and building words.
