My Students

Every student of mine is an English language learners. These students are smart, funny, kind and a pleasure to teach. They are dedicated students. Their greatest struggle is exposure to academic language in English. Many of my students spend their school day in English and their home time in their first language. My school has a variety of languages represented. Some languages you will find on my campus are Arabic, Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese). Also, I have students that have Hindi, Bengali, Tami, Telugu, Gujarati, and Punjabi as their first language. I want to provide more for these students in the classroom and beyond the classroom. These students receive pull out instruction from my and also classroom push in instruction from me, as the ESL Specialist on campus. I want to make my room a fun place to come and a desired room in the building. Also, my goal is for every student to leave my room with grit, self-esteem, confidence, and knowledge.

My Project

Using the Cricut Explore Air, my students will be able to personalize all their projects and everyday items in the room. The Cricut will be used to create exciting labels for our bulletin boards. Along with bulletin boards, students will be able to create their own labels for their GOALS Journals that are currently plain composition books. As we set our SMART goals for language, the students will be able to use the Cricut machine to write a portion of their goal and post it in the classroom. I'm very excited to watch their creativity come alive and their goals become more personal with a variety of fonts and paper colors. Truly our classroom will transform with this one tool!

Ownership will be visible as each student puts their own personal touch to each project, group work and individual work we do this year.
