My Students

I have the privilege of teaching 29 Second Grade ESL students who love school and come in ready to learn each day.

We are a diverse group coming from many different backgrounds, but we all have the common love of learning.

We are in a high-poverty area, many have limited English skills, and some are even fleeing war-torn countries with their families for a better life. These students work so hard and are optimistic and enthusiastic, despite the challenges or barriers many of them face. My greatest reward is watching them succeed!

My Project

A subscription to Scholastic News would be a great resource for my 2nd grade class!

It ties to all content areas and teaches students about current happenings in the real world!

It also lets students get their hands on another type of text, a magazine! We will be able to use this magazine whole group, small group, and independently to promote reading, comprehension, math, science, and social studies! It truly is teaches across the curriculum in an interesting and engaging way!

It would be a huge benefit to my students' learning and they would be so appreciative! It would also give them something to look forward to each week!
