My Students

My students come from a low-socioeconomic status community, and are all born from immigrant families. Both the students and their families are a wonderful part of our Bilingual Program where the students are juggling two languages, English and Spanish, on a daily basis. They succeed in their learning by doing their best in school, and from the excellent support they receive at home. Our school is a great community that holds students from Kindergarten to 8th Grade. It is a welcoming environment, where children's laughter is always heard. The dedicated teachers and staff at our school love what they do and truly understand, and have, what it takes to teach children in the beginning of their schooling career.

My Project

A classroom carpet will make our classroom environment cozy and feel more welcoming to my students. It will better our whole group learning environment by making students more comfortable. Providing my students with markers and erasers will allow them more opportunities to write and illustrate without feeling the permanency of pencil and paper.

Providing my students with a comfortable environment is one of my goals.

Building their literacy skills and fluency allows me to prepare them for the second grade. Lastly, having additional headphones in my classroom for my students will allow them to work independently on their listening skills when using computers and tablets.
