My Students

I teach 22 culturally diverse first graders in San Francisco. They come from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds and speak a variety of languages. Some students are fluent English speakers while others are just learning the language. I also have students with special needs whom we have welcomed into our classroom with open arms. Regardless of their differences and needs, all my students are curious, playful, full of wonder, and always eager to learn more. They love hearing stories about each other, about their teacher, and about diverse characters in books. They love exploring new places and using their imagination to create. Their interests are as diverse as the backgrounds they come from. It is my goal as their teacher to provide them with opportunities to challenge them to achieve their highest potential.

My students are like sponges.

They enthusiastically soak up information and are ready to learn more and more and more.

My Project

Have you ever been to a workshop or lecture and found that you couldn't understand what was happening because you were sitting in the back and couldn't see what was being presented? Well, that should never happen in a first grade classroom during a lesson! Students, regardless of where they are sitting in a room, should be able to visually see what is being taught in the front of the classroom.

A document camera will allow me to display what I am teaching and take individual assignments and turn them into whole class assignments, create more discussion, interaction, and maintain students' attention.

I will be using it to display materials for shared reading, model reading and writing strategies during workshop mini-lessons, and model word work and math lessons with manipulatives. Additionally, interactive reading and writing would be greatly supported with a document camera. This way, my first grade students will be more ready to practice independently after the lesson.

All students deserve the best learning environment. Won't you help my first graders achieve this opportunity? Imagine a read aloud in the classroom where students can actually see the pictures!
