My Students

My school is an economically disadvantage urban public school with over 80% of the students qualified for free or reduced school lunch. The school population is about 770 students for kindergarten through fifth grade. It consists of three programs: General education program and Chinese bilingual program. I am National Board Certified since 2009, and I have successfully renewed my certification in 2018. I have been teaching the first-grade Chinese bilingual program for 30 years. Most of my students are new immigrants with parents speaking little or no English at home. For my students, they have the disadvantage of not being read to in their early years. They also do not receive much help with homework with their parents due to the language barrier. However, these parents want the best for their children, and they put all their hopes and dreams in guiding their children as the leaders of tomorrow in my hands! Not only do I teach all the first grade standardized curriculum mandated by my district, but I also maintain the students' first language by teaching Chinese language instruction daily.

My Project

Distance Learning is already a very difficult adjustment for my first grade students. Not only are they dealing with learning with a teacher remotely, they may have inconsistent WiFi problems. Many of my students live in confined spaces full of children who are all doing Distance Learning at the same time. My students have a hard time focusing and hearing my teaching. I have a difficult time hearing them answer questions or reading to me. Throughout our synchronized instruction time, we keep saying to each other, "Can you hear me?"
