My Students

Our school is a welcoming environment with a strong belief in building on the talents and experiences of our diverse student population. 76.5% of our students come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, 25% are English learners, and more than 96% are students of color.

My class is made up of 32 enthusiastic students who are ready to learn and grow together.

We work hard to build a strong and supportive classroom community in which everyone can and will succeed. We learn and grow together through the sharing of our individual backgrounds and stories. Each perspective is respected and valued.

My Project

My students have such great ideas to share! Students learn from their peers as well as their teacher. However, it can be hard for students to share their ideas with the whole class if they don't have a way to chart up their work. This project will give them the markers and chart paper they need to show their thinking and share with one another.

With these markers, my students will be able to chart up the strategies they use in math, explain their understanding about the characters in their books, and share all the amazing things they have learned in science.
