My Students

Our school is just in its second year. We definitely still have that new feel! Being new is wonderful, but comes with its own interesting set of issues such as a lack of supplies and funding. Our students were transferred to our school from different areas around the district; therefore, they are from a variety of backgrounds. We have a wide range of incomes and an ethnically diverse population.

With San Antonio's nearby military bases, we have a large number of students from military families.

Another large portion of our students are from non-English speaking families, thus we are labeled as a bilingual campus. Added to this mix are our special needs students. Put all of this together and you get a school of wonderful students who often struggle academically, with many below grade level. We are all working together to make this an amazingly successful upcoming year for all our precious students.

My Project

My students create wonderful media presentations for almost everything we are learning about: book reviews, historical timelines, science concepts, current world issues, social issues they feel passionate about, and so much more. During this process students are encouraged to put a different spin on each creation by searching for new sound tracks, instrumentals, and mood music for their media projects, but in a class of 24 fifth graders it's difficult to find a quiet spot to listen to different music choices. Having enough headphones to go around would not only provide students the ability to listen privately to different musical selections, but enable them all the opportunity to listen to more music more often without disturbing other students. The more music the better!
