My Students

My Kindergarten students come from the inner-city and do not have as many advantages as students from other areas. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to make sure they have what they need to learn and succeed in school and in the world. I teach at a Title I school in California, which means that 93% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students are approaching independence, and I am proud to be their teacher.

They come to school eager to learn and curious about the world around them. My school is a safe place for them, a place for them to be nurtured, loved, and prepared for the future.

My Project

I have a class of wonderful 5 and 6 year old Kindergarten students who are eager and excited to learn and become independent readers, writers and mathematicians.

My kiddos are very hard working but also easily distracted.

Every day students do writers, readers and math workshop in which it requires them to do work independently. Currently, we are working on silent/quiet voices while reading and writing to avoid distractions and to help them do their best as they put their thoughts onto paper and comprehend the pictures or words that we are reading. However, with 26 students, it is hard to keep them quiet for more than 5 minutes. Before you know it, all it takes is one student to start humming or playing with their pencils on the table to make noise and there goes your quiet working time and FOCUS.

If my students were to have noise cancelling devices, no matter how loud the ruckus was, they would still be focused enough to stay on task and put their best effort into their work.
