My Students

When you step foot into our classroom, the diversity of the community is reflected in the make-up of our students. Our school is truly a melting pot that provides a safe space for children of all cultures to come together and learn. Our programs aim at providing services for all students and provide the proper scaffolds that will help each individual student reach his potential.

Our dual language classroom adds an extra challenge for our kids: learning a second language.

Through an enriching Spanish program that weaves throughout Kindergarten to 5th grade, we seek to prepare our Bilingual students to tackle the ever-changing world that demands a multitude of languages.

My Project

Every couple of years we have to update, revamp, and replenish the classroom for the current students and future generations. After taking inventory of our needs and wants, I created a list of items we can update (Bean Bags), add more to (2 more Fire Tablets!), and replenish (pencils - we can never have enough).

This revamp will help us say good-bye to furniture that has been worn out over the years, and it will add to our deck of technology.

Currently, the students use tablets primarily for editing and revising their writing. Through the Alexa component, they have a friendly AI ready to answer spelling questions. Moving forward, the tablets will also be incorporated into Spanish and English reading through RAZ kids. For this to work seamlessly, we need to add a set of classroom headphones. These headphones will allow students to use guided-reading technology and Khan Academy for math enrichment.
