My Students

My students are awesome. Even though they may come from families who don’t always stress the value of education, they come to school with a smile and are ready to learn. I do my best to build strong relationships with each student so they feel safe and understand the importance of coming to school. I also grew up in the same neighborhood, so the connection I have with my students is meaningful.

Most of my students don’t have access to educational resources outside of school.

I am passionate about teaching and providing as many opportunities for learning to each of my students.

My Project

I’m requesting a class set of earbuds so each student can have their own pair. They will use these while working on computers. This is helpful in keeping the students focused on their own task. I have a few monolingual students in my class and being able to listen to reading is invaluable.

The laminating pouches can make any document reusable.

In math, I could laminate multiplication facts and have my students practice the same facts daily.l to gain fluency.

All of our classrooms are equipped with digital clocks. With analog clocks, my students will be exposed to telling time a different way. They may have learned how to tell time as part of a lesson at school, but using an actual analog clock might be a new experience for them.
