My Students

I teach a wonderfully diverse group of students. My students face many challenges. Some of these challenges include poverty and homelessness. Most of my students qualify for free or reduced price meal plans. Over half of my students are English Learners.

Despite the difficulties my kids face each day, they come to school eager to learn.

They work hard and try their best. They are my heroes, and I love being their teacher!

Our staff is remarkable. We offer support to our students and their families before, during and after school hours. The dedication of every person working at our school is amazing. We truly care about our students and work tirelessly to help them achieve against some pretty heavy odds. We have created a caring and nurturing environment for the children we serve, and you can feel it throughout our campus.

My Project

We have recently instituted flexible seating in our classroom. These materials will help us to organize materials and access technology.

My students are primarily English language learners and the requested Califone Listening First headphones will allow them to hear books as they improve their reading fluency.

The storage carts and desk file organizer tray will allow us to store supplies since we are eliminating traditional desks.

These materials will greatly improve the environment in our newly reorganized classroom. They will make it easier to maintain the flexible seating we are now using. The earphones will help us maintain a quiet learning environment. They are specially designed for younger students and will be much more effective and comfortable for the children.
