My Students

I have the very best, brightest, hardworking, loveable students in the world! My students come from very diverse backgrounds ethnically, religiously, socially, emotionally, and economically. Our school is in a low-income area of a very small city. Most of my student qualify for free or reduced lunch. They work hard in school to overcome hardships at home.

Classroom dynamics have changed across the country in the last ten years.

I especially see that in my 2nd grade sweeties. They are coming to school less prepared for the demands of education today and far less focused for those demands. My classroom full of children really struggle to sit comfortably for any period of time. They are not trying to be naughty, they are just trying to be children. They love to help each other and me with any task we might have throughout the day. They feel each other’s joy and sadness and they genuinely want to be the best friends, students, and citizens that they can be each day.

As a guest in our classroom, you cannot help but to fall in love with these inquisitive, caring, and passionate little souls.

My Project

My students need to feel comfortable during their school day. For many of my students, school is the safest, happiest, most exciting location they go. Not even adults like to sit in hard chairs or on the hard floor for very long, yet most teacher expect their students to do just that and also be engaged. I believe that if our classroom feels more comfortable, these children will be more focused and eager to learn!

Having choice is a big part of feeling that you have some power in your own learning.

Choice should not be limited to adults only. Children need to feel like they can choose the best place for them to concentrate and grow. Second graders are just starting to be advocates for their learning needs and knowing where the best place to sit is one of those important aspects of learning.

I want my students to feel like our classroom is the most wonderful place to learn, grow and have fun!
