My Students

I have 24 amazing students. Many of my students are refugees from all around the world. 90 percent of my students live in poverty. We are a diverse group, who love learning, our community school, reading books, learning American history, reading novels and making connections.

We are an active group of learners who have a growth mindset and love learning.

We use Class Dojo and track our points for prizes and activities.

Our favorite thing is to play soccer and incorporate it into our learning. Thank you so much for considering our classroom.

My Project

The Learning Company - Oregon Trail 5th Edition game for History! This is a fun way to build on our history unit about Westward Expansion! It reminds me of the classic video game. SO fun!

Our students are learning about place value and we love to learn by playing games!

These games will be a great support for their learning and understanding of the math skills. Instead of drilling exercises, students can interact by playing fun games. Playing games will help develop their understanding of the math concepts and make learning fun. The storage bins will help students keep their games organized.

Thank you for your support and consideration of our most deserving group of kids! They are a great group that really benefit from group work and games.
