My Students

Setting up a learning environment where students feel safe, secure and motivated is deliberate. I want to create an engaging first-grade classroom where students can find supplies, technology and structure that match their 21st century life skills.

Many consider our classroom a "home." I work at a Chicago Public School on the north side of the city that merged with another CPS school just 1 year ago.

I have a diverse classroom with 26 first graders. My students always feel blessed to have community support. They see this by contributions to our classroom, however, large or small.

My goal is to create a learning environment where all different types of learners have the opportunity to thrive.

My Project

My first grade students and I would be thrilled to have all of these building materials for Friday Construction Time. It is a perfect time to be creative and have students build with their imaginations. The possibilities are endless! Magna-tiles, legos, Plus Plus building toys and more will put huge smiles on my students' faces after a week of engaged learning. Construction time is a great opportunity to build social emotional learning and awareness while being creative at the same time. They love working together as a team to build and create new things. All these new materials will benefit all types of learners and allow them to think outside the box.
