My Students

My students are 43 eager, energetic, and loving 2nd graders who are enrolled in one of Delaware's dual language schools. Students alternate between taking classes one day in English and another day in Spanish throughout the week. Moving forward with the Utah Model next year where students will receive one half day of English and the other half in Spanish. 99% of the students at my school come from low income homes where 100% students receive free school lunch. Regardless of our population's struggles, our school maintains a desire and mission to create bi-literate and bilingual learners of our future.

A great number of our students are ELL students who are ecstatic to learn and become bi-literate and bilingual scholars.

Whenever presented a challenge, my students are tackling it full force giving it their all. Students encourage each other to never give up and do their best even when they feel discouraged. Our school seeks to show the potential of our student population with what they bring to our classrooms. Our jobs as teachers is to live and breath the UNIDOS (united) mission.

My Project

In this upcoming school year, I am looping with my first graders to second grade. Now that I know my students have learned how to read, it is time to read-to-learn in second grade. I want my students to expand their reading tool belts with rich nonfiction texts. Through Time for Kids, my students will be able to have a hard copy of a nonfiction magazine weekly throughout the school year. My students will be able to learn much more about the world that they are living in through these subscriptions with Time.

My students are natural inquirers who love to learn about science facts, news from other countries, and are constantly asking why.

What better way to indulge in world news and scientific discoveries than having a magazine bring it all into the classroom? The texts that we currently have in our classroom are not updated with interesting nonfiction topics that my students are always curious about. With the Time for Kids subscription, my students will feed their inner curiosities with a plethora of knowledge that I may not always have time to teach.
