My Students

I have been teaching at the same Title I school for the last 17 years and every year is better than the last. If I had to describe my students in one word, it would be amazing! They are determined, dedicated, enthusiastic, and engaged. We have just begun a year long journey of learning full of new experiences and challenges. I know that they are willing to work hard, take risks and make incredible progress.

Every year I teach my students important information like how to read and write and do math problems but in the end, they teach me some pretty important things, too.

Like how to enjoy the moment, show empathy and understanding for each other during difficult times, be flexible, conquer challenges, power through difficult situations and how to be resilient. I am lucky to have them!

My Project

Our school is full of students for whom English is their second or even third language! Many of our students come to school without access to books in their native language and about their culture.

This project would allow my students to learn more about Hispanic culture and language through quality picture books and it will allow my Hispanic students to see themselves represented in the books we read.

My students love to read. Picture books are part of how they learn more about the world and how they see themselves in our world. Because of this, diverse representation in our classroom library is one of our main goals this year. My Hispanic students need to see themselves in the books in our classroom library and we all need to learn more about Hispanic culture and language.
