My Students

Our students are English Learners (ELs) from a diverse social cultural and linguist background. This project would reach ELs in grade 1 to grade 5.

Our ELs must develop their language and academic skills simultaneously.

They have in common the heart, grit, and effort they invest into their learning. Their potential and talents are tremendous.

We are partners in ensuring our ELs love for learning. We learn to value each other's backgrounds, talents and shortcomings, AND we celebrate our successes throughout.

My Project

We want our ELs to feel comfortable, welcomed, and ready for learning in our flexible seating space.

As a rule, our ELs 'go the extra' mile in their learning efforts.

We want them to feel at ease and continue growing their excitement for learning.

Our flexible seating classroom will help our ELs engage in their learning, feel at ease, and look forward to being at school daily.

Many of our ELs use their backgrounds as a springboard to excellence. We want to continue nurturing their efforts by offering them a classroom space conducive for developing their creativity and potential.
