My Students

I teach positive, hardworking scholars English Language Arts in a small group setting. Ranging from 5 -13 year-olds, these youngsters sometimes feel defeated, but work hard to accomplish their reading goals! I want them to feel nurtured in a positive space. I believe every child can learn, and we need some odds and ends, and organization tools to help us get our positive intervention classroom up and running!

We are a Title I school, which means we are a high needs elementary school, where most students are English Learners coming from low-socio economic households.

Their amazing parents work multiple jobs and late hours to make ends meet. Parents put an immense amount of trust and respect in me to educate their children to the highest level!

When students begin to read at grade level you see the world of opportunity light up in their eyes! Reading changes the trajectory of every child's life and is undoubtedly one of the most important skills youngsters learn in school. Please help me bring respectful opportunity to historically marginalized youngsters by giving us what we need to thrive in a nurturing, organized, intervention classroom.

My Project

Storage bins and file folders will be used every day as a means to organizing each intervention student's materials. File folders will be utilized to put together formative assessment data which will help maintain each students' progress, along with their personalized learning goals. Every day students will come into the intervention room, grab their unique storage bin, bring it to the small group U-shaped table, and will get straight to work on the lesson objective at hand, to maximize the 30 minutes a day we have together.

When students have the opportunity to not only be organized, but to have their own space with clear educational goals, in a loving classroom environment they will thrive as capable, successful readers!

The flame retardant bulletin board paper will help create an eye catching wall to display anchor charts of concepts taught, for student reference throughout the year. The soft glow timer will seamlessly and silently count down student time in the intervention classroom without bothering other teachers and students in our shared space. The balance ball chair will help the teacher stay energized and focused as she remains seated in this alternative learning environment, educating K-6 intervention students.
