My Students

I have a phenomenal group of 18 kindergartners at a Title I school. I have eleven boys and seven girls. Fifteen of these students are English Language Learners. My students deserve the absolute BEST materials in the classroom in all areas of learning to help them grow. They are engaged, eager learners and look forward to coming to school and learning every single day. I want my students to be successful learners every single day. Allowing students to have plenty of resources in the classroom that help them learn is very important to me. Growing and thriving as learners is an amazing thing to witness!

My Project

Having an inviting listening center where children are eager go will increase their love of reading, and help them learn English at the same time. I am seeking support for a comfy couch listening center, a new CD center and a few treats to help motivate students. My students participate in listening stations on a daily basis.

I believe that the new listening center will help build independent readers and encourage ELL students.

I am confident that the new listening center will help with independent reading skills. I am hoping to create lifelong readers. My goal is to instill a love for books!
