My Students

I am honored to teach a wonderful population of students. A majority of the students are English Language Learners (ELL), and my school serves as a host school for refugees coming from various places.

I look forward to every day with my students, embracing the wonderful differences and experiences they each bring.

I want my students to know they are valued, loved, and safe when they come into the classroom. I strive to model and teach growth mindset so each kiddo knows that their potential is limitless.

My Project

Testing is becoming more and more stressful for our kiddos. They are expected to be at their best every day, all day for high stakes testing. They are bombarded with testing in order to show their worth. It is my job to help my kiddos stay calm and optimistic throughout the seemingly nonstop testing.

I want my kiddos to walk into every test prepared and confident.

The testing dividers will help the kiddos stay focused on their own work. The colored paper will be used to print out inspirational quotes to put on the inside of the testing dividers to cheer on my kiddos while they test. The trading card protectors will be used to store the variety of username and passwords they use. The colored pencils will help add some color to the drabness of testing.

I am hopeful these supplies will help my students gain excitement for testing rather than dread. They will be able to be excited to show their knowledge and grit, and be proud of their work.
