My Students

I teach fourth grade in Oakland. Like many Oakland neighborhoods, my school community is quickly gentrifying. Our student population, however, is predominantly working class and Spanish-speaking. Our school is a Title I school, with over 60% of our student population qualifying for free or reduced lunches.

My students are enthusiastic and compassionate learners who receive immersive language instruction in Spanish and English.

Every single one of my students loves learning, and their learning needs vary greatly. As teachers in a project-based learning school, my colleagues and I incorporate various teaching strategies and learning options to ensure students' needs are met and to allow every student to shine in their own and unique way. Every year, I feel so fortunate to meet and learn about a new group of learners and leaders who are excited and ready to learn!

My Project

This project will support my students' learning in Spanish language arts by giving them culturally relevant books with related themes, to learn and write about the features of a fiction text. In addition to giving them access to complex texts and a chapter book, this project supports student wellbeing by allowing my students to continue to learn away from the computer screen. While students are adapting to distance learning in inspiring ways, many of my students still need to be able to handle books and other learning materials in non-digital form.
