My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of energy, ready to learn, and excited for the day. I teach at a Title I school in the Bay Area where many students may not have a tablet, Chromebook, or even a pair of headphones available to use. Despite the challenges they may face outside of school, my students come to school ready to learn and grow in our classroom. My students are eager to learn many new things and love a challenge.

My Project

I hope to add the Kimochis Social-Emotional Learning Program to my classroom, which is a communication-based approach that supports positive behavior and communication skills. The program will help students develop social-emotional and communication skills, identify and express feelings, and understand the emotions and perspectives of others. The curriculum uses Kimochi characters with "feeling pillows," which will encourage my students to express their emotions through puppetry and play. The curriculum is accompanied by a Teacher's Guide, which will offer tips and strategies that can be infused in the classroom. I will use the program on a weekly basis in order to build a strong social thinking component to my classroom program.

I want to expand my teaching further than just teaching students the "expected behaviors." I want to teach them to be efficient social thinkers by being more flexible and equipping them with a better understanding of the feelings and perspectives of themselves and their peers.

I want my students to become well rounded people and be able to be a productive member in society.
