My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day buzzing with excitement. Elementary education is an exciting experience for most children, but for my students, all of whom come from a high-poverty neighborhood, it is a chance to escape from the hardships and negative environments that many of these young children are exposed to. My students are English Language Learners, and their excitement to learn not only a new language, but also math and literacy, makes teaching them a truly rewarding experience. I work hard to make sure they have lots of positive experiences with math and literacy, and also create a sense of community and belonging in our classroom.

Our classroom is a safe haven that gives these wonderful students the chance to become explorers, critical thinkers, mathematicians, scientists, authors, artists, and caring, responsible friends.

Their excitement for learning is something that I truly wish to nurture and develop into a lifelong passion for education.

I do not let the obstacles of minimal to no resources discourage me on this mission. It only motivates me to strive harder to provide them with the best and most comprehensive education possible.

My Project

Learning a new language, while building literacy skills, can be a challenging activity. My students would truly benefit from learning centers that allow them to build their English vocabulary with captivating real life pictures to help reinforce the words with visual connections. Reading and writing centers that are created to be engaging, with colorful cards and opportunities to work in small groups, allows my students to practice skills we have learned in fun and exciting ways.

When students are given the chance to explore literacy and language through a variety of learning activities, they are able to make meaningful connections that will positively impact their education.
