My Students

My students do not come from the wealthiest families. They do not have the best things. They are low-income, immigrant families, mainly from Spanish-speaking countries. They work hard and care about education.

We live in NY and go to a NYC public school.

They try their best every day. The students all get free lunch and most of the supplies they have are the basics; pencils, paper, book bags and the supplies needed for daily school life. I try to supply as much as I can to lift the burden of money from the families.

My Project

Learning a new language is not easy for me as an adult. Imagine what it is like for elementary aged students. My school consists of mostly just that. I would like to focus on vocabulary and writing. The writing folders will be used to help guide the students through the process of writing. We will go through that process monthly in various writing activities. It will allow them to keep their work neat and organized. The writing journals will allow the students to write about their emotions and what is on their minds. This will allow the students to get rid of what is hindering their learning.
