My Students

Our class is filled with an amazing group of self-started and motivated kindergarten learners who empower me every day to provide them with a rigorous and excellent academic experience.

Their highly motivated spirit inspires me to provide them with a learning environment that provides them with the resources, academic experiences and research-based instructional strategies that will empower them to continue their learning beyond my classroom walls.

Regardless of their low-socioeconomic background, diversity in academic experiences and needs, they arrive every day very excited to learn and succeed.

My Project

The collection of authentic Spanish books will promote the development of literacy in the classroom while increasing the students' knowledge of their own cultural background. The written text will promote the students' culture, and it will help them make connections with the text.

Literacy is the foundation of ALL learning!

By providing students with familiar characters, settings, topics, and themes, they will make deeper connections with the characters, their problems, feelings, and emotions throughout the stories. This will facilitate their comprehension creating opportunities to increase the level of critical thinking in the classroom.

The books will be used to introduce and extend the different reading skills and concepts that are essential to prepare them for the wonderful journey of becoming an independent reader, writer, and learner!
