My Students

Our school serves students in grades K-6 and provides rigorous academics to amazing, motivated language learners in a safe learning environment. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in high school, college, and future careers. The students in our school are about 70% ELL and speak about 20 different languages.

There are many different languages in my classroom and in several different cultures.

The students come to school with no supplies to use. For these students, life in our city is very different from their lives before coming here. We strive to be at all times respectful and appreciative of each other's culture and strengths. We believe that all students bring a unique set of gifts to the classroom.

My Project

Since library budgets are being cut each year these materials will be used in the library to cover current events and non-fiction text. With state test having lots of non-fiction reading these materials will help prepare our students better for the state testing.

Students will have resources on current events to help them get a better understanding of events that are happening in the world.

Scholastic News is an exceptional magazine for students to use in the classroom and to bring that information home to share with their parents.

Students will be able to transfer this information with their classroom teacher, peers, and family.
