My Students

My classroom is comprised of many students who are immigrants and speak a language other than English at home, are gifted, or part of our special education programs.

I love the start of each day as students line up ready to get to class.

They smile because they know that something exciting will happen. I keep them guessing at what new things I might try or how I will read, and even what I just might wear (I came dressed as Dr. Seuss one day). These students all have different interests, from playing sports to reading a good book, but they share a common bond, the bond of curiosity and that is truly an amazing gift.

My students live in a high poverty area in Arizona. Our school is a Title I campus, and 100% of the school is eligible for the free lunch program. Our focus goals are to greatly improve our writing and our math abilities, but a major focus is to improve our reading ability with fluency to comprehension in all aspects of our school and classroom.

My Project

My students have many questions when it comes to learning, As a teacher I want to answer all their questions and support their thinking.

As my students engage the lesson topic, many times I have to turn and write on the board to explain my thinking, having Elmo tablet in my hands, allows me to present and and inform while standing facing them.

Face to face interaction supports better student learning and engagement as we are always facing each other. Your continued support of my classroom supports students continually evolving to support their needs in this 21 century environment, thank you in advance.
