My Students

My evolving 21st century, school library serves an eager to learn and an inquisitive student population of almost 700 students from PreK through 5th. We are a Title I, Turnaround school with a 100% free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch population. Our transiency rate is roughly 39.1 which is significantly higher than the district average. Our ELL population is almost 50%. We have Primary and Intermediate Resource & three self-contained special education programs-primary autism class, intermediate LIF class, and intermediate SEC (Severe Emotional Challenges) class. Embedded in the education for all learners is that, above all else, our differences and diversity, who we are and how we learn, is to be celebrated and shared. Students are encouraged to follow their passions, believe in themselves, use their strengths, and look out for each other.

Our library not only emphasizes print and digital skills, but also social, cooperative, and creative thinking skills, which are needed for my 21st Century Learners to be successful.

WISER is the guiding acronym in our library instruction. It stands for Wonder, Investigate, Synthesize, Express, and Reevaluate. This acronym guides all our work as these are skills needed to be lifelong, contributing members of any community.

My Project

Insufficient dental hygiene early in life can cause problems for years to come. However, dental services often becomes less of a priority when families have to choose between paying rent or going to dentist. Lessons covering health standards about dental care and diet can help bring awareness of early dental care and supplies to students. Learning about dental care also means learning about careers in the dental field, which is part of our College and Career Standards.

This project includes an oversized model of the mouth which will be used with our dental hygiene lessons differentiated for our PK-5 students, as well as incorporating career options with our older learners, then each of my 650 students will receive their very own tooth brush and tooth paste to take home!
