My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am working with both diverse learners and ELL students. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences in reading.

I want them to have energy for our after school reading program with healthy snacks.

I have learned over the years that after school programs really help students improve.

My goal is for them to see themselves as the next generation of committed citizens to who want to be successful.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.

We are reading and working on vocabulary everyday to help them reach their goals.

Please help me nourish their bodies and minds!

My Project

In our after school program our students come to my classroom after a long day wanting to improve their reading scores.

We wipe the tables and pass out the snacks and they silently read each day for 20 minutes.

I have created an environment that students can relax and enjoy a good book. We have a 10 book goal for this semester.

We focus on a skill each week to help them improve their reading scores. We work on writing skills, reading and nutrition.

The students also work on work on vocabulary, talk about nutrition and the importance of eating good food and exercise.

I have seen great improvement in our students scores and students enjoying reading more for fun and entertainment.
