My Students

This is my 12th year teaching at our school in Corona, CA. We are a TK-6th grades Title I school serving low-income students learning English as a Second Language. Our Staff devote themselves everyday to giving the best education we can with the resources we are given to these amazing children.

These kids are special to me because they work so hard to be the best they can be.

I want to make their learning environment as comfortable and enriching as I possibly can. They are our future!

My Project

These clocks will help my students gain a conceptual understanding and hands on experience with elapsed time. It is an extremely difficult task without any actual clocks to manipulate with. These clocks and number lines will help students in a way paper, pencils, and fingers cannot. We learn best by doing, help me give my students these materials to conquer elapsed time and gain confidence while doing so. They deserve access to the same education students in higher socioeconomic schools are receiving right now. With the state test around the corner, I want them to feel confident and believe they can achieve anything they set their mind to!
