My Students

My second grade students come to class each day with a desire to learn. Providing them with high quality teaching tools and strategies that keep them interested and engaged while still learning is difficult. I have the privilege to teach students from variety of diverse backgrounds.

Most of my students qualify for free or reduced price meals.

My students are English Language Learners. My students are eager to learn but lack the foundational skills in the areas of reading and writing. Background vocabulary is one of the areas that is impacting their reading comprehension skills.

My Project

This year, I will be teaching a 2nd grade bilingual class. My students for this upcoming year are English Language Learners students and I am planning on incorporating many techniques to ensure they get the support they need. Many of my students do not have technology at home, and I am trying to help prepare them for the future. These students may not always have all of the necessary resources or opportunities, but they work together as a class to make the best with what they are given. As their teacher, I am working to create a safe and engaging environment to help these students see the perks of education. We will use the MacBook for editing and publishing their writing projects, and it will also allow me to have students work on their keyboarding and writing skills. I hope you are able to donate a MacBook to my classroom to make these dreams come true.
