My curious, motivated, and inspiring students are eager to learn! My school qualifies for universal free breakfast and lunch due to over 80% free or reduced-price lunch status. Our students and their families live in an economically disadvantaged community. My second graders and I are part of a 4 classroom team. Most of our students were in first grade with us last year and now we will loop together through second grade. Over the course of two years, my students and my teacher colleagues and I will have countless opportunities to learn from each other.
Our class motto is We never, never, never, never, never give up!
This means we all work together, ask questions, and think hard every day. My inspiring and inspired students appreciate the generosity of donors who help us obtain the resources we need.
My second graders and I have been engaged in online distance learning since March 13. This means that we've replaced our in-person classroom with a virtual classroom where we are engaging online from our homes.
My students are working from Chromebooks, iPads, Kindles, and phones in their homes on projects and activities that my teammates and I are creating from our homes.
My teammates and I have landed on the Seesaw app as the platform for engaging with our students. We've begun creating a variety of activities for our students which is especially challenging for teachers of a certain age such as myself. I've found several teacher creators on the Teachers Pay Teachers site who have created digital resources that address the math, literacy, social studies, and social emotional learning targets we need to address.
