My Students

Generational poverty plagues the area surrounding our beautiful community school. Our children are often traumatized, neglected, hungry, language delayed and live in survival mode. But they are also strong, resilient, innovative, bright, caring and kind people. They take care of their siblings and of each other. They do their best with their limited resources. They endure so much hardship and stress, yet they come to school every day with smiling faces, ready to start the best part of their day: school.

These little learners have changed my life in so many ways!

They have helped me see the good in the world, no matter how small. They remind me that no matter how dark it seems, there is still some light somewhere. They make me laugh when most people would just give up an cry. It is this unconquerable spirit that I love most about them. It is also why I strive to provide them with as many opportunities and experiences that I can during the short time that they are with me.

My Project

My students need independent "light-up" resources that help them work collaboratively. My scholars will be using these glowing materials to display their thinking behind sounds in words and quantifying numbers. This is a wonderful way to record and revise knowledge through using direct examples of student work. The display trays can hold a variety of tactile-kinesthetic materials needed to match initial sounds, illustrations from stories, journals for writing prompts, and so much more. The possibilities are endless!

The light-up table will help make new and correct information "pop" as these colors are aesthetically pleasing and command your attention.

I am hoping to implement new ways of helping reach them across all content areas, while being sensitive about their current state back home. The literacy centers bring bright, colorful, and a welcoming feeling to our classroom. I would like to transform some of our literacy centers so that their learning is purposeful as the navigate for the first time through the ABC's.
