My Students

I work with remarkable scholars! Many of my students come from a household in which parents only speak Spanish. Several of our own scholars only speak Spanish. Those scholars are doing dual learning by trying to master their first-grade goals but all while trying to learn English. I only teach in English, so I truly appreciate all my scholars who are trying to juggle both. Even though some scholars might have challenges, they continue to work hard regardless!

"Holyoke ranks as the fourth poorest place in Massachusetts.

The town ranks as having the 6th lowest median household income and the 2nd highest incidence of poverty in the state" (Sparks, 2018). Although my scholars face a language barrier, they also deal with other challenges outside of the classroom. These challenges are not within their control. Being scholars of one of the most poorest communities causes them not to be fortunate enough to offered school materials. As their teacher, I do my best to provide the scholars with the tools they need to be successful. With the little I do help, they are very appreciative. Their cheerful spirits are what makes the work I do even more amazing.

My Project

All my students want to be able to create their ideas on paper and bring them to life. Our scholars today wish to zoom into a lot of their math and science work. This year we will do a lot of reading, writing, and learning the ways math can help improve our everyday life. On the list, there is a listening center. This center will be a creative tool for multiple scholars to listen to amazing stories of engineers. While then using all the other supplies like pencils, notebooks, crayons, and paper to create their ideas.

STEM Leaders is what my scholars are striving to become.

By utilizing all these tools, they can get a better learning experience!
