My Students

My scholars are rock stars! We are part of a Title I school and 77 percent of my students come from low socioeconomic families, receiving free/reduced lunch, but learning is one thing that keeps on going! My students give me the drive and purpose. When they are at school, they are lighthearted, driven scholars and there with one purpose, to learn. They put aside their external concerns to just enjoy being at school and being surrounded by their supportive peers and educators. In class, we work as a supportive team to help each other.

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest," stated Benjamin Franklin.

In my classroom, students become college-prepared and empowered to become lifelong learners. Scientists, engineers, educators, and many other professionals are produced. My students are striving daily to become global citizens who will make a positive difference in the world regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. We are leaving our future to them. Investing in their education is the best investment you can make!

My Project

I have seen a center carpet area in all lower grades from TK to 2nd grade in many schools, however, from 3rd grade, they start disappearing. Why is that? There is so much learning accomplished when kids move and come together and focus on what is being introduced right in front of them. There are valuable, higher quality collaboration and discussions that take place on a carpet. As I change my classroom this year to flexible seating and implement Daily 5 and CGI, a carpet area is a crucial piece to student success. Help us build a stronger classroom community!
