My Students

My classroom is filled with a wide diversity of students. The diversity consists of culture, language, and abilities. My classroom is also filled with multiple personalities. Some are outspoken and love to be in the spot light, others are more quiet in large group but outspoken in a smaller group.

Every day my students come to school eager to learn.

They each bring something special to the day. I have students that love to lead and help other children. Others are eager to answer questions during lessons. Throughout the day my students love to share their stories-sometimes from home other times from different parts of the day.

My students are special and unique in their own way. I love them!

My Project

My school is located in Brooklyn NY serving a wide variety of ethnicities. We are exploring all cultural background and traditions. My students value the expertises if their classroom. With your help, my students will be exposed to all different genres of reading material.

The diversity of my classroom allows us to engage in multicultural learning.

I want to be able to expose my students with as much literature background as possible. The core of education is experience. These students not having much experience, will be able to gain experiences through reading and project based learning in the classroom.
