My Students

My exceptionally amazing students come from families living on the economic margin, in a high-poverty neighborhood where almost 100% qualify for free-lunch. Our classroom's diversity is reflected not only in its multicultural ethnic make up but also in a range of learning abilities with English Language learners, exceptional, special education, and on-level students. I strive to meet the diverse learning needs of my students by differentiating my teaching strategies with activities that go beyond the curriculum.

In the classroom, regardless of societal labeling, firsthand experience with poverty, or our under resourced school's urban location, my students feel safe to be independent thinkers, spirited learners, and creative engineers.

I have created an emotionally safe space and inclusive classroom environment by teaching my students specific skills to help manage their emotions and behavior. The attainment of these skills, are facilitated with a diverse approach, creative interaction, and open dialogue between everyone in our classroom's learning community. When students feel as if a teacher is truly invested in their socio-emotional well being, students will judiciously invest their time and efforts into the content being taught.

My Project

Our school provides free breakfast, lunch, and supper for everyone, but that doesn't mean that students have access, especially when attendance is a barrier. As we approach the end of the school year, our supplies and fiscal resources are depleted.

This hardworking and dedicated teacher has exhausted her own funds to provide continuous nourishment to all of her students

It is time to restock and have a sustainable food pantry in our classroom to enhance the learning of students who always stand in need of more food. By helping to provide food, our students can be assisted a little bit. There is an obvious need and any assistance in keeping our shelves stocked is greatly appreciated!
