My Students

Hello! I am a 2nd grade Dual Language teacher. My students are eager English Language Learners in a school with a mixture of newly-arrived immigrants and second-generation immigrant students. Our school is very diverse in that we receive immigrants from countries such as Honduras, Guatemala, Congo, Burma, Mexico, and Bangladesh, just to name a few.

My students bring their enthusiasm and resilience to my class and create a wonderful learning environment.

Aside from working on their acquisition of the English language, we also focus on 21st century skills that will help these students graduate from high school and be college-ready.

In my classroom, we focus on STEAM with an emphasis on the use of technology in daily lessons. It is an amazing feeling when a student learns to code or to use a device better than their teacher. These students learn and grow so much in 3rd grade, and they make our school an amazing place.

My Project

These difficult times in our world have exposed the great inequity in our education system. Our most vulnerable students are missing out on quality education because they do not have access to technology. In our school district, students in Kinder-2nd grade do not receive devices to complete assignments, which means that they must visit the school to receive a paper homework packet.

Your donation of 10 Chromebooks will help my students access our enriching online lessons, read a variety of books online, visit with their peers and teachers using through video conferencing, and even go on virtual field trips.

Please consider funding this project and help bridge this gap in our education system.
