My Students

As a first grade teacher in an urban setting, 100% of my students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. My students tend to need early intervention in reading and math due to a lack of some very basic skills. My students are very enthusiastic and motivated while learning and building confidence of mastering new skills. It is always my goal to produce students who not only catch up with their counterparts but surpass them.

In the words of Benjamin Franklin, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I'll remember, involve me and I learn." My goal is to facilitate learning experiences that encourage my students to become life long learners.

My Project

Letters Alive and Math Alive Plus are a supplemental reading and math kit that incorporates evidence-based best practices to teach early literacy and number sense skills. As a teacher, I have the flexibility of teaching whole group, small groups, centers, or individual students. My students will be able to hear, see, touch, build and speak, while encouraging positive and engaging experience that will increases proficiency and retention.

I can just imagine how exciting my lessons will be as my student manipulate and construct new ways to learn.

Each learning kit includes a full-year supplemental curriculum aligned to kindergarten state standards, all while engaging students through a 3D technology known as augmented reality.
