My Students

"They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel"... This is one of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes and is exactly how I feel about my classroom environment. I want my students to feel like school is their home away from home.

We are a Title l school tucked away in a quaint neighborhood in the San Mateo County.

Our population is made up of 80% English Language Learners and we are dedicated to providing an equitable learning opportunity for each and every student at our school and in our classroom.

My Project

Reading is such a fundamental part of early academics and it is my goal to not only develop strong readers--- but also foster a love of reading in my students. Bean bag chairs around the room are the perfect way to create a comfortable and inviting reading environment in the classroom.

Flexible and more comfortable seating will allow my students to read anywhere they want in the classroom!!!

The more they read, the stronger they will become!!! AND most importantly, they will love doing it!

Thank you so much for helping to create a comfortable, inviting, literacy rich environment for my students!
