My Students

My students come from a low-socioeconomic status community and are all born from immigrant families. Both the students and their families are a wonderful part of our Bilingual Program where the students are juggling two languages, English and Spanish, on a daily basis. They succeed in their learning by doing their best in school, and from the excellent support, they receive at home. Our school is a great community that holds students from Kindergarten to 8th Grade. It is a welcoming environment, where children's laughter is always heard. The dedicated teachers and staff at our school love what they do and truly understand, and have, what it takes to teach children at the beginning of their schooling career.

My Project

Our current dry-erase whiteboard was put in place over the existing chalkboard and it has been very well used. The new dry-erase whiteboard contact paper will help us refresh our whiteboard contact paper that has been up for several years and is ready to be replaced.

My students are born writers.

Providing them with various tools for writing is important to me. Dry-erase whiteboard markers are a great writing tool because they are colorful and not completely permanent. Headphones are used year round, and many parents cannot afford to purchase them. Providing my students with headphones they can use in class is very important. Lastly, I strive to provide my students with age-appropriate writing notebooks. Equipping my student tables with journal notebooks they can both draw and write in will allow them to collaborate during small group instruction and express themselves.
