My Students

Our school is a dual language community school that serves ECE through sixth grade students. My class is part of the rigorous Dual language/ bilingual academic program that prepares all of our students to be bilingual and bi-literate. In the school, 97% of our student population participate in the free or reduced-price lunch program. The student body is 91% Latino/Hispanic, 4% Black, 3% White, and 2% Asian. My students love to learn and have the desire to learn at the beginning of their day. They come from families who want them to have a bright and successful future. I have dedicated myself to doing my best to provide a safe and kind environment for my students to flourish as individuals.

My Project

I try to teach them that they deserve an education and a successful future. When I first moved in to my new classroom, I was very excited even though there was a persistent smell and the old carpet was stained. I was excited because I only see the potential to make my classroom a home away from home for my students. They love to read on the carpet, they are most comfortable and productive if they sit or lay down with a good book. A new classroom carpet will ensure that they have a good clean carpet to do their work. We have a lot of learning to do and when students feel worthy and comfortable learning can then commence.
