My Students

My class is filled a wonderful group of students who come from many different socio economic and ethnic backgrounds. This class has bonded together since kindergarten and are very welcoming any new students that come into our urban classroom.

These students are always eager to learn and acquire new information everyday.

I am always challenging them to try their hardest and not give up, if the do not succeed right away. They are willing to take on these challenges and persevere.

My Project

Our schools is working on a new initiative to help students increase their reading comprehension skills. We are working with students in small groups to break a story down to understand new vocabulary, themes, comprehension of the story and author's purpose.

My student's love for reading has increased tremendously this year by reading new and interesting books.

I have nurtured this love by reading these books with the students. Giving the students opportunities to listen to these stories on tape after they have read a few chapters and discuss the story with partners or small groups. Their love for reading has grown so much that in the beginning of the year they struggled to read alone for 10 minutes, now they beg to continue for almost half and hour!
