My Students

I teach the 3rd ESL classroom in LaSalle. Currently, I have 21 students in my classroom that I am responsible for teaching reading, writing, math, language workshop, spelling, social studies and science. Most of our students receive free/reduced price lunch. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, some good and some not so good. We have great parent support in our classroom. We are part of the big picture that teaches students who come from various backgrounds. Some were born in a different country and moved to the US when they were young and some just recently moved to the states. English as a Second Language (ESL) students in general need hands-on activities along with vocabulary. My goal is to provide them with the best learning environment possible.

My Project

Research has shown that students need flexible seating arrangements when they are reading, solving math problems, writing or studying the past in social studies. Our students in the Happy Camper classroom are no different. Their learning will continue to grow as they are able to choose where they work at and in what seat. Whether it be the three tree seats already in our room, Wobble chairs, bean bags, yoga balls, or seat crates, these students love the options to learn. We are requesting two more Tree Seats. These students can do anything that they put their mind to because they are our future. Help the Happy Campers with their next project.
