Eager and energetic children enter my classroom every day. All of my students are Hispanic and have not been in a traditional classroom setting prior to Kindergarten. It is my goal to reach and teach every child who walks through my door.
We are a Title I school with the largest bilingual population in Orange County, Kg-4th grade.
All of our students receive free lunch. I am determined to meet the needs of all my students and provide a rich curriculum and classroom culture in which all will thrive.
Recently, with the devastation of Hurricane Maria, our school has been receiving an influx of scholars from Puerto Rico. These students are precious and an added bonus to our classroom community. I am hoping to implement new ways of helping reach them across all content areas, while being sensitive about their current state back home.
How many kids love to play dress up? They love getting into their favorite storybook or movie character even when it's not Halloween. After receiving new students from Puerto Rico, I would like to motivate them and to create that same level of excitement with my students when it comes to Science! We get to perform many different experiments throughout the year so why not dress up like a scientist when we are acting like a scientist.
These lab coats and goggles will not only keep us safe during experiments but make it more engaging and fun!
What better way to get students involved and excited about science than becoming a scientist themselves.
