My Students

My creative, open-minded students are the reason I love my job. Their willingness to learn and be engaged in solving large and small problems is so motivational. I am consistently astounded by the generosity and inner consciences of all 26 of them. I teach in a high poverty school where many consistently face trauma and the challenges of that. Yet, the caring they show towards others shows the resiliency they have. We have been able to build that resiliency on a daily basis by building our classroom community.

I consider my students my own kids and we all look forward to coming to school to see each other; their unique selves make our school and community a better place to be!

We love to do exciting class projects and try out their ideas of topics to learn about, then they share their research with the class. It is the most gratifying feeling to see their perseverance and their abilities to learn about something new with a positive outlook.

My Project

I has been over four weeks since I have seen my students in person. This is due to the closing of schools because of COVID-19. This is not the same as taking a school break in normal circumstances, we were not able to have that closure they deserve when saying goodbye for summer break. Not being able to see them in person and show them how much I care for them and want them to feel safe is the most difficult part. We communicate virtually on the daily and I send letters to them for an additional connection.

They deserve to be reminded about how they are not forgotten by anyone during this time, especially their school family.

With over a month apart already, I want to resupply them with some more fun activities they can do at home that utilize their creative side without the need for technology. Not all my students are able to have that virtual daily connection due high poverty situations.

The coloring book, flash cards, brain teasers, colored pencils, puzzle and gum are a fun way for them to remember how they can still be a kid.

These kids are amazing and all the caring connections we can make with them are worth it. I can't wait for them to receive this special surprise, they are sure to love it!
