My Students

My students walk into our classroom smiling, excited and eager to learn every morning! They look forward to the challenges that face them academically but most importantly, how to figure out a way to solve them productively. This year more than ever, my students have shown respect towards one another understanding that we are different, but we smile in the same language. They have learned their friends' languages to greet one another. There is nothing more beautiful than listening to a Chinese student greeting the class by saying 'buenos dias' or a Spanish student greeting friends in Polish! For every birthday, we sing Happy Birthday in Chinese, Spanish, and English! Even though they are on different levels academically, they share some similarities.

My students are all English Language Learners.

They are learning English together while remembering their native languages and cultures. The school I teach at is a Title I school, and all students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My Project

Teaching English Language Learners has taught me that students can express themselves in more than one way. Often times, students turn to the Arts to help them transfer their ideas.

Having various art materials that students have access to will make a huge difference with how students show their understanding.

Students will be able to draw and/or paint to help express their ideas. Using dough will help students become sculptors and builders in ways they never knew were possible. Markers will give them a different medium to write and draw with.

What better way to express themselves than through the ARTS!
