My Students

The students in my first grade class are interested in sharks, puzzles, making friends, STEAM, and superheroes. They want to succeed even though there are many forces in this country which fight against their efforts. They speak Spanish, Tigrinya, Somali, Khmer, Cambodian, Mandarin, Tagalog, and English.

My students are inquisitive, hilarious, honest, and ambitious people.

Two out of three are living in poverty and yet every single student has so much drive to learn. Our dual language program supports native Spanish-speakers along with those with a desire to learn Spanish. With a wonderful diversity of interests and challenges, our school works hard to know each student's name and needs.

My Project

"Each day I will learn by doing my best, working with others, being safe, fair, and kind." Every member of our community works very hard toward this goal, which we remind ourselves of every morning. Many of my students deal with homelessness or housing insecurity.

This project will contribute to my goal of closing the achievement gap through access to technology.

With the iPad mini my students will be able to access math resources such as IXL and Khan Academy to build upon and extend classroom instruction. Access to Readworks will give students access to nonfiction articles featuring historical scientists and animal life cycles. I also hope to encourage students to take pictures of their best work to make learning portfolios at the end of the year.
