My Students

Our school is dedicated to honoring the heritage of each and every student in our diverse community by providing a culturally relevant education and embracing the power of multilingual literacy. We provide a rigorous and nurturing environment for students while fostering a warm family-oriented school culture and a strong connection to the community at large.

My students are brilliant bilinguals who use language creatively to express themselves and communicate with the world.

While some of my students have grown up bilingual, others are becoming bilingual for the first time. We support each other through a language buddies system as well as by giving daily shout outs to students who demonstrate our guiding principles.

My Project

As a Dual Language classroom, my students are becoming both bilingual and biliterate. Reading books originally written in Spanish is an essential part of that process. These books reflect my students language and cultural practices and provide a model of authentic Spanish writing and discourse patterns.

These books will fill out our Spanish library, providing students with enough choice when reading in Spanish so that they can find books that interest them and are at their reading level.

Currently, the English library dwarfs the Spanish library and students quickly exhaust the options available to them in Spanish. Having a more robust Spanish library will reflect the value that is placed on Spanish language and literacy in our classroom and increase my students' investment in reading in Spanish.
