My Students

My students are 3, 4 and 5-year-olds who are curious and excited to experience and learn new things in a safe, welcoming environment meeting thier most basic needs and finding ways to overcome those that impede our learning. The majority of our building enrolled students are English language learners and near half have some level of services for a disability. My students live in a large city where the sense of a caring community and environmental safety and health can be difficult to find. All of my children are already considered educational disadvantage simply based on their community, school and family finding themselves stuck in the cycle of living near, at or below the poverty level. The labels create a harsh barrier to success but will not defeat us.

Despite the gray cloud hung above...

These small miracles of life are still demonstrating resilience and courage to make thier little light shine through.

Even with the challenges faced, we gather daily at school with a positive expectation that new knowledge we gain here together will be the continuation of our foundation for success and pave our way to opportunities to further all our learning and success.

My Project

Making the final connection for all students with disabilities to have ease of access to join thier peers in play area. Our play area is a courtyard that has four steps which are very deep and that makes it difficult to enter the area independently when faced with mobility differences. This project will make the stair area accessible for all students including my preschoolers and all the way up to eighth graders and all our visitors of family and community members. The requested ramps make the last connection across the odd stairs and will help make the final stretch of providing independence for all.
