My Students

I teach amazing fifth grade students in a small elementary school in beautiful San Ramon, California. My students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and socio-economic situations. My classes come together as a class every day in a meaningful way. My students each have their own learning struggles and strengths, yet each child's individual needs must be met in our fifth grade classroom.

Our school serves students in grades K-5 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment.

As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing school districts in the state every year. My goal is to prepare my students for success in middle school.

My Project

New for the 2019-2020 academic school year, all 4th and 5th grade students at our school will learn music theory, learn to play a musical instrument, participate in choral music, and learn the basics of theater (including acting and set design). Our grade level teams are thrilled to develop a music focused program and bring these exciting opportunities to our students.

We know that studying drama and performing arts not only engages with the creative side of the brain, it also provides an ideal balance in students’ patterns of study.

Drama and the performing arts allow students to develop cognitive abilities which complement study in other disciplines. In order to ensure all of our students are able to participate in this school wide initiative, we are working to build up or inventory of high quality musical instruments for student use. The four flutes in this project will be shared across our 4th & 5th grade classrooms and bridge any gap our families have in accessing instruments.
