My Students

I work with 23 students and even though we are far apart right now, we're trying our best to feel connected through the school closures. I am working hard to bridge our distances right now and establish new routines that can help make students feel secure.

One surprising silver lining during the school closures is the way that the pressure of standardized tests has been lifted.

I am able to speak with my students about learning as the gift that it is. In the midst of so much chaos, we have been able to come together and I want to use this time to motivate students to explore their interests.

My Project

My students are trying to weather this storm, like we all are. They are young and don't have much control about many things happening in their life. Many students are missing the routine that we worked hard to establish during the school year. I was so surprised when 7 students told me the part of school they missed the most was our quiet reading time! I expected them to miss the excitement and playing, but instead it was a routine moment of peace and calm.

I am hoping these exciting prizes will encourage students to establish schedules for themselves and not only hold them accountable to do their work, but also follow projects they feel passionate and excited about!

I video chat one on one with students each week so we can do reading/math lessons and I help connect them to resources they're excited about, like coding games or dance projects.

Each week gift cards will be raffled off, one for a student who turns in all their assignments during the week and another for a student who explores something they're passionate about! As a bonus, their family will get to celebrate them with a pizza party, a hot cocoa, or a new game!
