My Students

My fifth-grade students are working diligently to increase their twenty-first century skills and self-esteem. They are highly motivated students in need of higher level thinking opportunities. I am interested in supporting my students to achieve their dreams by helping them access their inner potential.

My students are deserving of the best the world can offer because they are our future!

They are a fun-loving, creative and dedicated group of learners coming from primarily Latino families located in suburban California. Our school has about one thousand students in a pre-K through fifth environment where free or reduced-price lunch is the standard. We are co-located with a magnet school on our campus.

My Project

Here in California, our first subject of the day is "Breakfast in the Classroom". It can be messy, germy and most definitely, attracts insects. By learning responsibility and cleaning up after eating, my students can make our classroom healthier and lessen the chance that bugs will come creeping in!

Who wants bugs and germs in their learning environment?

The Seventh Generation disinfecting wipes and Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products will be used to disinfect our desktops and working areas. Since spills sometimes happen, the O-Cedar Spin Mop can whisk away these accidents to prevent slips and get rid of bug attracting scents. The gloves can provide protection to our hands while cleaning. Having a clean classroom will lessen the opportunity to get sick and can promote daily attendance.

Please help me to provide my students with a clean learning environment.
