My Students

My students are a lively bunch that show up to class eager to learn, despite the challenges they are faced with in and out of the classroom. I have a wide variety of learning styles and levels. Every morning we greet each other with a smile and good morning. Throughout the day, I see random acts of kindness in our class which makes me so happy!

My goal as a bilingual teacher is to encourage my students to love learning and to develop lifelong independent learners.

I especially love that they try their BEST on everything that comes their way! They love to read and enjoy hands-on activities. They are great helpers and I know I can count on them. Everyday I make sure and instill good qualities that will make them amazing citizens.

My Project

My request is for a Cricut machine to use in our classroom for several purposes. I got the idea of using the Cricut in the classroom to help us create crafty STEAM projects that really stand out. The machine can cut out almost any shape you can think of. It will motivate my students to enjoy learning!

The Cricut can be used to liven up classroom projects, bulletin boards, anchor charts, and even create class t-shirts.

I want students to think of positive sayings to make for our classroom and remind them that anything is possible as long as they stay focused on their goal. The possibilities are endless!

My students will be able to use technology to create visually appealing artwork. They will also have access to materials they do not have access to already. They will be LEADERS in their own learning process. You will help me to provide hands-on learning!
