My Students

Our class of 32 represents over 10 different countries, and these kids are anything but ordinary. My diverse students come from all walks of life. Their urban neighborhood is flooded with colorful personalities, booming businesses, and it's always full of interesting stories. They come into the school day ready to face it all; some come with trauma, language challenges, and family issues that flood their innocent minds. They come into school hoping for a safe haven, an inclusive learning environment, and a daily experience they can empower that to rise above any of their difficult circumstances.

They rise to the challenge daily.

With almost a third of my class, English Language Learners, some newcomers, these students work rigorously twice as hard as the average learner to communicate in their second language, English. More than half of my students receive free/reduce lunch, but make no mistake, their financial upbringing does not get in their way of being the best scholar they can be. Unfortunately, some of my students are far too familiar with trauma, incidents that alter their emotional frame of mind daily. It takes a village, and our class is a family. Brave and motivated, they learn through adversity always.

My Project

Working in groups and collaboration is key in my classroom environment. Kids are encouraged to discuss, share, and connect immersing in the journey of learning rather than just focus on getting the right answer. With so many different personalities, speaking and sharing can be a challenge.

One way to motivate talk among students is creating a cohesive space for them to meet.

The colorful rug will be inviting for students to come and partake in tasks and activities with one other. They can learn and share ideas depending on their physical styles: sitting, lying, pillows, low chairs, yoga balls. The high-top table is so popular with the upper-grade students. They feel a sense of purpose and feel more mature when sitting here. This piece is inviting motivating them to sit, face each other and collaborate. Its tabletop is wide enough for any group project-based learning. This project will produce a space for students to engage in academic and social conversations in all subject areas.
