My Students

I teach the English half of fifth grade CLIP, the Cupertino Language Immersion Program. I teach science, math, English reading and English writing. My students also take Mandarin writing, Mandarin reading and social studies in Mandarin with another teacher.

My students work very hard to balance learning a second language, all their regular school subjects and after school activities.

It is a huge commitment for the students and their families to be a part of this program.

My students enjoy learning beyond the fifth grade curriculum. I take them deeper into science. They rise up to the challenge and produce quality work. Overall, these students work hard and exceed expectations in academics, pursuing their bilingual education.

My Project

Our school is starting Reader's Workshop, a curriculum through the Teacher's College. For one of the units we need sets of fantasy books for the students to group up and discuss in book clubs.

Our library is not prepared to supply enough copies of each book for our students so we are looking for funding to get a set of each book at a variety of reading levels for our fantasy book clubs.

This is my personal favorite genre so I am super excited to get my students interested in the fantasy genre of books, trade recommendations and discuss our favorite stories.
