My Students

My students are very special to me because as a resource teacher, I get to work with them long enough to see their growth and needs over the years. My school is located in an inner city low social-economic community in California. About 80% of my students are also English Learners. My students all have some sort of mild to moderate disability which impacts their learning in a general education classroom.

In my resource class, we value cultural and linguistic diversity as we work on meeting individual student's learning needs and learning styles.

Given all the learning challenges my students face daily at home or at school, they still come to my resource room for academic support with unbeatable zeal, happy smile, and strong motivation to learn.

My Project

My students are all naturally-born artists when it comes to illustrations for their writing projects, even though they come from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. They may not be able to express themselves fluently like their non-disabled counterparts, but they all strive to express themselves in writing and they enjoy illustrating their writing. I am always amazed at how far their creativity can go when they illustrate what they write. For example, on our recent Letter to Santa writing project, a Latina girl drew a Christmas tree with many windows and a door. With the door opened, the Elves are walking to that Christmas tree house. When I asked her to tell me about her drawing, she explained that her family is very warm and they would invite any friends and families to the house during Christmas time, even the Elves.

A color printer will greatly help my students celebrate their cultural diversity in their holiday writing projects.

I'm blessed to have students from diverse backgrounds. Not only that I encourage my students to talk about their cultural heritage, but I also provide them with many opportunities to express their rich backgrounds and individual differences, for example, writing about how people celebrate holidays in different countries.

As Christmas is drawing closer, I planned to publish an authentic class book about Christmas celebration around the world, starting with a Letter to Santa. A good color printer will help me give my students a beautiful class book with the collection of everyone's writing and illustration. It will be a wonderful multicultural Christmas gift to take home to enjoy for this holiday season.
