My Students

Our school serves students in Grades K-8. This fall, I will be the 5th Grade Reading/English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher for three classes, totaling approximately 84 students from diverse ethnic backgrounds! I will also teach Spanish as an after school opportunity to increase opportunities for reading, speaking and writing. To ensure my students learn and perform well during testing season, I am hopeful in creating and implementing a variety of resources to help with differentiated instruction, and tracking their growth.

We are a public charter school which receives Title I funding, with 87% of our students coming from low-income households and eligible for Free and Reduced Price lunches (FRL).

My Project

Coming to school motivated is hard for many students; dealing with "real world" problems at home has left them preoccupied with other things. I have been committed to giving my students the very best, and that means asking for help, looking for additional resources, among many other things. My students' eyes light up when they see new resources in the classroom.

They are excited to come in and see what new game, book, or even pencil they can use.

I need organization in the classroom to make the day go by with ease. Furthermore, I am looking to expand my library to optimize their time spent there. I currently have a few pillows where they can lie comfortably and let their imagination fly through books. I want to supply them with bean bags in effort to recruit the students who have little to no interest in reading. I can assert that students gain motivation and interest when they feel comfortable and confident.

With my student helpers, my carts will be a great asset to have when they can reach each slot and have the papers ready to be passed out. Lastly, teaching my student accountability and responsibility is something we practice everyday. By supplying them with glue and highlighters will motivate them to complete assignments and even use the bright markers for guided reading.

I am hopeful these supplies will be just what they need to motivate them to dive into literature and get excited about arts and crafts.
