My Students

As a teacher in a low-income school, a lot of my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite these many challenges they come to school everyday wanting to learn. I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

Many of them will be the first in their family to have to opportunity to attend college.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as typical. They do not get to travel a lot and see a lot of places that many of us take for granted. From the moment they walk into my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire them to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Flocabulary is a program that works well for use during instruction to introduce topics as well as for reinforcement and reviewing topics. With the push for ACT score improvement, my students need all the extra help in this area that I can provide them.

After teaching Language Arts for many years, one thing that has become apparent is the need for students to have strong vocabulary instruction.

Flocabulary makes learning vocabulary fun and attention grabbing. Students tend to not even realize how much they are learning because they are so focused on the catchy beats of the songs. This program helps students learn not just memorize important vocabulary.
