My Students

I teach Science to K-5th grade students. Many of whom come from low-income families, refugee status, and who are English Language Learners. These students are cared about tremendously by our incredible staff. They each have unique talents and strengths and they get the opportunity to share them with their classmates.

Our school is filled with students from diverse cultures and backgrounds, yet they all come together to build this unique learning community.

As a teacher to these youth, my goal is to inspire them to adventure and discover and desire to learn so that they would have the confidence to see the bright futures ahead of them.

Many of my students believe that they are smart, they do not know enough English, or that they are not good enough. A.A. Milne said, "You are braver than you think, you are stronger than you seem and smarter than you think." May we each inspire that spirit in each student through empowering them in our classrooms.

My Project

Scientists who write out their thoughts are much more likely to think through difficult problems and start using science vocabulary. Academic Language like that used in Science can be a bridge for our English Language Learners to make connections to the academic language used in other subjects as well.

By giving students the opportunity to write questions and answers to their investigations, I hope to use their curiosity to drive them to write more helping it to improve as a byproduct.

I hope to give every 4th and 5th-grade student a notebook to be able to journal about their classroom discoveries. May they be empowered to always keep wondering and asking questions.

In addition to the notebooks, there are a few other tools included such as pencils, clipboards and file folders that will be a great help for myself and my students within my classroom. May we help give confidence to the future scientists of this world.
