My Students

My classroom is a mixture of bilingual, English learners, and socioeconomically disadvantaged students. Every child deserves the opportunity regardless of their backgrounds. Their little eager minds are so ready and willing to learn new things everyday.

My students are eager learners that look forward to engaging in academic and social emotional learning on a daily basis through centers and activities that ignite curiosity and self motivated engagement.

They love to be challenged through play that stimulates academic learning. I look forward to helping them grow and prepare them for third grade.

My Project

Flexible seating will allow my students to learn in every corner of our classroom. They can engage in different centers around the room or just look for that comfortable spot they need when having their own reading time. Flexible seating is not only for comfort and flexibility, it also helps with effective learning and proximity for engagement. This seating is more comfortable and allows natural movement, which the students need from time to time to stay engaged.

Flexible seating helps keep young minds more alert and focused which leads to academic growth.

While at centers, small group , whole group or even one to one intervention the rolling white board will always come in handy. It is accessible and students will also feel comfortable knowing that mistakes can always be erased.

This will positively enhance the comfort, focus and engagement in my classroom.
