My Students

Our school is the oldest public school building in Illinois. Our building may be timeworn, but our staff is dedicated and first class! We serve mainly low income families with a large population of English language learners. Their experiences outside their homes are few, so we work hard to bring the outside world to them.

My primary classrooms consists of a mix of kindergarten, first, second, and third grade diverse learners.

All at different levels, all with different needs and abilities. Their curiosity and love of learning keep us striving to find new ways to engage them

My Project

My students enjoy hands-on activities, working on projects, and presenting their projects to their classmates, parents and school staff. They take so much pride in their work. Anchor charts record my students' thinking and highlight really important parts of a lesson. Anchor charts also allow students to show their problem-solving skills during our guided reading and math lessons.

My students need sticky easel pads and Sharpie markers because they facilitate learning through shared experiences, teacher modeling, and student interaction.

Students can refer back to them while working independently or in small group. The easel pads will make a difference in our classroom because they will increase student collaboration and accountability.

Every child deserves to play an active role in becoming lifelong learners!
