My Students

I am a 3rd year teacher at a Title I school. I teach first grade to twenty-five amazing, challenging, intelligent, deserving students. These scholars receive breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner at school. Our school is a stable, supportive house of learning in what can be an often violent and unstable neighborhood.

Our school community truly comes together to support the development of the whole child.

We believe each child has enormous potential and deserves the world. Our curriculum is rigorous but the students are up to the challenge and set high goals for themselves. The pride they take in their successes is amazing to see.

My Project

My first grade students are inspiring! We go to school year-round and have an extended school day and these scholars don't skip a beat.

They rise to all occasions, strive to exceed the highest of goals, and all with a positive "yes we can" attitude.

Our lunch this year is at 10:50 am and we continue to learn until 3:15 pm. This is a very long day for such little bodies. I am asking for snacks like pretzels and crackers to be eaten during our listening and learning part of the day. During this time, the scholars engage with rigorous texts and answer comprehension questions. This working snack keeps their brains and bodies fueled to keep pushing, learning, and growing. I want to ensure I am caring and nurturing for my students' minds, bodies, and spirits and believe these snacks will help do just that. Thank you for believing in us-- my scholars deserve it and won't let you down!
