My Students

My very sweet, extremely animated babies are from a Title I school in a low income neighborhood. They always find a way to come to school each day with a smile and a story to tell.

Many of my students have extreme hardships at home, that I couldn't fathom as an adult.

I consistently find myself feeling empathetic and try my absolute hardest to bring my bubbly personality to all aspects of their 8 hour school day. Tangible things won't replace a loved one or erase bad memories, but I'm hoping that some of the memories that we can make in third grade can override any negative thoughts they may carry with them.

8 and 9 year olds deserve to have the same amazing experience I had, even with technology. Giving them any ounce of hope for a bright and successful future is my daily goal for these sweet angels.

My Project

Entiendes? "Ms. Evans, how do you say chaclas in English? How do you spell that? Why does is sound like a u? Where does the h come from?"

Well, learning how to read English is a big struggle when you don't understand where letters come from, why there are extra letters, why some letters make 47 different sounds, there are multiple meanings of the same word, multiple spellings for the same word, and, oh yeah, their parents don't speak the language!

I've been able to find some programs for my ELL students (15/19) in the class but unfortunately, since from a low-income area, my babies aren't able to afford a good pair of headphones to help them learn as best they can. We have 6 random pairs that I've found in my bedroom or that were left in the room from the previous teacher. A class set of headphones would make a huge difference.

Being able to HEAR the language will help the students conversationally and when they are able to carry on a conversation and hear the proper pronunciation of a word, they will be able to quickly pick up on words while reading and learn from what they are reading.
