My Students

My students come excited to learn in two languages, as part of our Spanish Immersion Program that was adapted ten years ago to meet the needs of our cultural and linguistic diversity in our district. Six years ago, parents got organized and successfully implemented uniforms at our school. This has helped our students to stay focused on learning and it has provided a positive learning environment for each student.

I am enriched and blessed by my students' diverse cultural, linguistic, and economic background.

More than 85% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

All of my kindergarten students get the amazing and unique opportunity to start learning in English and Spanish from K to 12. Close to 25% of my students' first language is English, and 50% of my students' first language is Spanish, and 25% speak another language. They share the journey to be able to graduate from high school bicultural, bilingual, and bi-literate; it all begins in my kindergarten classroom.

My Project

My students have access to several online resources in our dual language classroom. They use handwriting, math and digital books and magazines apps throughout the day. Some is Spanish and other parts are in English, which provides them additional practice and support in their first and second language.

By having a set of headphones, it will allow me to differentiate instruction for my students.

They will have an opportunity to rotate through the various centers during literacy, science and math. Each student will be able to focus better, engage and learn as he or she listens privately with headphones. This will be beneficial to everyone because right now, a group of students listen to the same CD or tape which is often distracting and not the best way to differentiate and maximize instruction in the classroom.
