My Students

My students are hands-on, visual learners who come to school ready to learn! After spending a morning in our Title I classroom, you would never guess that roughly 60% of the students are labeled “at risk” and more than 85% are considered “low socioeconomic status”.

My class of young learners is the most diverse group I have ever had the pleasure of teaching.

My classroom of 25 represents four different native languages and four different countries. They are curious and creative with a love of all things hands-on and active. Our students come from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds and strive to reach high standards. These culturally diverse students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and speak different languages. My classroom provides many first time opportunities for the students including the first time in school, the first time making new friends, and the first time to use technology or hands-on manipulatives.

My Project

Our PTA recently donated Osmo system and headphones to our class. The students LOVE this center, but because of the number of students they are not able to use it as often as they'd like. Our technology center will be complete with the addition Osmo gaming systems and headphones. Students will use this technology to build words, differentiate beginning sounds and vowel sounds, count and compose numbers, compose and decompose shapes all while building social skills. My hope is that students will have the opportunity to engage in active, fun learning all while building a strong math and reading foundation.
