My Students

I teach at a Title I school in East San Jose. A majority of my students are first-generation Americans with hardworking immigrant parents. Seventy percent of the students at my school are receiving free or reduced-priced lunch.

I teach a wonderful group of Kindergarten students.

My students are hard working and enthusiastic learners. They are easily motivated and enjoy attending school every day. They are always excited to try and learn new concepts. My students inspire me every day to be a better teacher.

My Project

As a teacher, I believe that teaching students how to read, write and add are just a small part of my job. I believe that it important to teach my students to be well rounded, giving and caring individuals. I teach these values everyday in my classroom through books and discussion. One of my favorite books is Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree. This book sends such an important message about generosity and unselfishness. I have read this book to my students many times throughout the school year and I still get requests. I am requesting for 24 copies of The Giving Tree so that I can gift them to my students as an end of the year Kindergarten gift. I know that my students will cherish this book for the rest of their lives. It will definitely serve as a reminder for them to always be GIVING and UNSELFISH.
