My Students

My students are like raindrops. Each one unique in their own way. It is their challenges that give them strength. Those same challenges and the way they face them encourages and inspires me to do what I am called to do. Students of my middle school come from the low-income neighborhood of East New York Brooklyn. Beyond the walls of our classroom, they face violence, poverty, homelessness, and other challenges. Their stories are enough to inspire anyone called to serve them, to do so with a bit of extra love and care. My classroom is truly a melting pot. My classes are comprised of learners from every corner of the the world whose learning experiences are vast, but the capacity and eagerness to learn is there.

My classroom is home for my students.

My classes range in sizes from 28 to 37 and while seating is currently a challenge, I am encouraged by their willingness to share space and spend their time working hard and learning together. Most rewarding is that unless there is a medical reason, my student who may make a poor choice to skip another class, show up ELA.

My Project

This year my desire is to help my students continue to grow as readers and writers. Our biggest challenge is little or no access to technology. Chromebooks will allow my student access to online resources for reading and writing development. Chromebooks will allow me to create and provide interactive lessons for my students with learning challenges. They would allow me to revitalize individual and group assignments, allowing my students of diverse learning styles to function at the best.

These Chromebooks would allow my students access to books in their language, at their lexile and of their interest.

My students are often reluctant to read when the options are the paperback they see in every classroom. They are also reluctant to write when they are limited to their black and white composition notebooks.

Chromebooks would allow me to break down those walls and broaden the scope of the learning experiences for all students by providing opportunities for critical thinking, collaboration, communication, as well as individualized learning plans.
