My Students

I teach in a culturally diverse Title I school where 95% of the students are socioeconomically disadvantaged. Many of them have struggled academically. Most are English Language Learners who are learning to speak English alongside their academic learning. Even getting to school can be a challenge with early pickups and long bus rides required to get to school on time. My students work hard every day to overcome the challenges that they face. This is especially true since the Sonoma Fires ripped through our community in October. While none of my students lost their homes all of them were evacuated, some for several weeks as the fires ravaged Santa Rosa.

Since returning from the three-week school closure due to the fires my students have re-engaged with school and are working hard to strengthen our classroom community and make up for the learning we missed during the closure.

In spite of the extreme challenges we faced this year my students come to school actively excited every day; they love to learn and explore.

We are excited about finishing our year of learning together!

My Project

All of the students at our school love using our old, worn out hockey sticks. Unfortunately, the blades are nearly gone and there aren't enough to go around. Team sports are an integral part of our Physical Education curriculum but in order to have an entire class play at the same time we need enough equipment.

These hockey sticks will allow a whole class to work on sportsmanship and teamwork while having fun playing hockey.

Our students often do not have enough available activities during recess. This new set of sticks will give them another fun activity to play with their friends. Our Student Engagement Facilitator looks forward to running hockey tournaments at recess.
