My Students

My students are enrolled in a 50/50 model of a Spanish dual immersion program, where 50% of the instruction is delivered in Spanish and 50% in English. I focus on math and science, delivering the curriculum in both languages. My partner teacher does language arts and social studies, and we both incorporate art and play in our lessons. We work with two sets of students, first and second graders, totaling 44 students.

Approximately 85% of our students qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program, and 56% are English language learners, designating this population as low socioeconomic level, and our school as a Title I school.

Despite low resources, my students, all of them, have and demonstrate a great potential in learning with inquisitive questions and ideas.

My Project

With a strong inclination and eagerness to learn and play instruments, my young musicians would treasure a classroom set of recorders. Together we can collectively learn to play simple songs that to them would be the world. The power of music can be an important venue to lift their moods and scientifically proven to positively affect their brains. With the few different instruments we have, it is difficult to learn the notes on a specific one.

With the prevalent use of music worldwide, we can strengthen our art learning by incorporating it in the classroom.

This is possible with a classroom set of recorders to learn basic music reading and songs.
