My Students

When someone asks me how my kids are doing, I say, "Which ones are you talking about? My own or my students?" Every year my 4th grade students become a family to me, and I care about them as my own. My K-5 school in North Jersey is filled with amazing people with such different backgrounds. One thing they all have in common is their interest in hands-on activities and solving real-world problems. Each student is unique and learn from various teaching strategies. Not only are they learning, but I also love learning from them. One thing I have realized as I've gotten older is I am just like my students where I never stop learning.

With a background in special education, I often have students placed in my classroom with varying needs.

I frequently put myself in my students' shoes to figure out what's going on in their tiny heads, and what's the best way to make them understand what I'm teaching. I pull tricks out of my sleeves that I've learned over the years, or often I try something new. My students are the reason I continue to teach and to be the best teacher.

My Project

This is the first year I changed all my individual desks to tables. My fourth-grade students sit in groups of 3 or 4 around tables during the school day. This allows them to have a lot of group discussions and do a lot of group work. I try to have a project-based classroom where they collaborate to complete projects. As of now, all of their binders and pencils are all over the tables. I have little baskets on the tables for pencils and erasers, but they keep getting knocked over or not used.

These pocket chairs will give my students a place for them to keep their pencils, erasers, various journals and other important folders since they don't have desks to put them in.

My students need to learn organization skills by taking better care of their things and putting them away. They have little boxes across the room where they can keep things, but I have to call a few students at a time to get their things, which takes away from learning time. Keeping these pockets on the back of their chairs will save time so that I don't have to wait for everyone to get what they need.
