My Students

The first graders that spend their days with me in our classroom are amazing examples of our school's mission.

Spending my days with 6 and 7-year-olds that care for each other, accept each other and love to learn makes the job of being their teacher incredibly rewarding.

They are kids that are surrounded by struggles but come to school ready to learn and share. These students deserve a classroom that fits each of their needs for each day they arrive.

My Project

We will use the new headphones many times each day in first grade. Students will be able to access online math games in order to build math fact fluency and apply new concepts to problem solving challenges. They will also use them to strengthen their literacy skills. We use a program that necessitates each student to be able to clearly hear their individual lessons and assessments without distractions of neighbors reading with partners or me teaching small groups. Having these headphones to start off our new year will make these activities possible which is such an incredible support for these young learners!
