My Students

My students are refugee newcomer students, from high poverty community, and are new to the USA. My class is made up entirely of refugee students from Africa and Asia. All of my students have been in America for less than one year. They are new to the food, language, and culture. My students all came from refugee camps and have had no or very little or limited education. They have very limited in English, but most of my students speak three or more languages.

All of my students have been affected by war and needed to flee from their home country.

My students struggle with poverty and past traumas. I am supporting my students in a sheltered English classroom, where I am teaching all subject matters using English as a second languages techniques. My class is designed to shelter these students to bring them up to grade level in all subject matters.

My school is the first in the district to open a newcomer program. We are a team of language specialist, social workers, and teachers who work to assimilate the students into the culture, ease their fears about coming to a new country, and help them to achieve success.

My Project

In the past few months I have seen how my students have been progressing in their English language skills and have started to acclimate to the education system and have been making great gains.My goal is for my students to become comfortable in using English, which will not only impact them, but their entire family. I have seen the value of the use of manipulatives and picture rich materials and games in the success and learning of my students.

These language games will help my refugee students from Africa and Asia to better understand and learn English to be successful in their education and be able to better access the content .
