My Students

I have the pleasure of working with beautiful and bright bilingual students! My students are hardworking, responsible, and determined to succeed! Our school is a Title I school which limits the resources available to us.

Despite the challenges they face daily, our students come to school ready to learn!

We are in a dual immersion classroom and feel so grateful to be able to learn in Spanish and English every day. My students know that their knowledge of two languages will benefit them in the long run.

I want my students to know that anything is possible with hard work. All of my students know that after high school comes college! Please help us encourage that idea by helping enhance our classroom environment.

My Project

Have you ever opened up a book and then found yourself getting lost in it - unable to put it down? Books are like taking on a new adventure. Traveling from one place to another. This book, "The Tale of Despereaux," or 'Despereaux' (Spanish) will be sure to take my students on a memorable adventure! My students love when we get to read aloud together. I know they will enjoy the classic story of a mouse named Desperaux and his brave adventures.

Promoting literacy is so important, and this story would greatly benefit my bilingual students by providing them with a book that is authentic to their reading interests!

My students work hard every day and I want to encourage that by introducing new stories that will catch their interest! Please help me introduce them to this wonderful story!
