My Students

I am a first-year teacher and I am so excited to meet my first group of 3rd-grade students. Most of my students are new to the country and eager to learn.

The school I will be working at is a Title I school where 95% of the students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.

I hope to create a welcoming space where my students feel safe, calm and cared for in order to become successful, driven learners.

My Project

Having a library in my classroom will help my students close the bridging from Spanish to English and help them develop the love of books. Having a rug and a couch will help students being more comfortable; while the bookshelf will help them keep their books organized and easily accessible.

Developing student's biliteracy will help them overcome any obstacles they may encounter and help make connections to their first language.

We will use these materials to aide my students to become life-long readers and learners. As a new teacher, I want to make sure my students have everything they need and with your support that will be possible!
