My Students

We are a 90+ % of students who are on free or reduced lunch. They are 4th graders who love to be read aloud to and enjoy discussing many different topics in order to reach those higher order thinking skills.

The joy of teaching on our campus comes from the motivation our students have to learn!

Our students enjoy attending school, and many times are disappointed when a holiday is near because they will be away from school for so long. So we invite you to help us become a stronger academic learning environment!

My Project

My classroom of Second Language Learners is a vibrant and inviting one! As a teacher, I strive to create the best learning environment for my students in order for them to reach their best potential. My students know I will try multiple research based strategies to help them be successful.

Strong engagement is a priority in my classroom.

The whisper phones will provide the opportunity for my students to listen to the written word in multiple areas. One area will be in Writing, the students will be able to listen to the usage of the written word to determine if the information is correct. In Reading, the phones will help with comprehension. Reading the text out loud to themselves, helps with being engaged with the text.

Finally the black light will be used for Academic Vocabulary engagement! The students will use highlighters to write on their desks. When the black light is on, the students will be able to see in black light the academic vocabulary they are using in their writing.
