My Students

My students are all English as a second language learners. I teach ENL learners in grades 4, 5, and 6. They are all eager to learn and experience what this wonderful country has to offer. I am one of the first experiences they will encounter in their educational journey.

This great nation of ours was founded on immigrants in search of a better quality of life.

I feel privileged to be a part of educating and empowering these young minds.

My Project

I am asking for an interactive white board so I can effectively teach my students in a more engaging and interactive way.

Many of my students are immigrants just coming to this country, where technology is very limited.

My students are very motivated by technology. because they have very limited access to the use of technology, it is seen as a treat for them. Because of school budget cuts, our technology is very limited. I am asking for a white board so I can do whole class lessons more effectively, engaging all learners of all levels. I now use a regular chalk board, which takes time to write on and erase. With a smart board I would be able to have my lessons flow from one activity to another, keeping students constantly engaged with fun interactive activities.
