My Students

I have been blessed to teach at this school and I am starting year 25.

My school is a wonderful place to be.

Students feel safe and loved when they walk through the doors. Many of them come for breakfast and stay until the after school program ends at 5:30 pm. It is their home away from home. My students come from a low socioeconomic background and often live in one apartment with 2-3 families.

Ninety percent of my students are English language learners (ELLs). Often the only meals they receive are the ones that they get at school. I have a huge heart for the people of this community. As the years have passed by I have received visits from former students who are now going to college and a few who have even had the privilege of graduating from college! It fills my heart with joy and I know they will fill your heart too!

My Project

The Qball is an effective teaching tool that will allow my students to be heard all throughout the room in an interactive way. Students will be more eager to participate in classroom discussions because they will want to be the one to throw and catch the Qball to talk into the microphone.

The Qball will help increase student participation in my classroom in a fun and interactive way.

Their voices will be projected so that all students can learn from each other.

We will use the Qball daily to help facilitate class discussions and engage reluctant participants! The Qball boosts kinesthetic learning. We can also use the BONAOK wireless Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone to boost our voices so that all our little voices can be heard.

Using Magna Tiles in our classroom during developmental centers time will help us with STEM ideas and become young student engineers. As first time students this will help them work as a team or by themselves to create structures.
