My Students

My students are hard workers, they try to be successful in everything they do, even on the tough days because 75% of my students at our school are on free and reduced lunch.

Therefore, we try to implement Leadership in Me which is a school-wide based program that teaches the students 7 Habits to incorporate in their academic and personal lives.

This encourages the students to have a Positive Attitude, Interaction, and Effort 100% of the time because at home it may not be so positive.

The kids say "I want to feel safe when I make a mistake, so that I can continue to learn and reach my goals." They are thinkers, creators, writers, and authors who persevere so they will be successful one day because they know how to carry the 7 Habits with them everywhere they go and in everything they do!

My Project

The content of Front Desk will connect the cultures of my classroom, so that the students can connect with the contents of a story, but they can also find ways to join in discussion about diversity.

Tolerance of cultures and diversity is something that our students lack.

The hope is that our students will be able to have the text to begin as the base of our discussions on how to care, serve, and believe in each other.

In addition to this, we can connect this text with another novel that we are reading, which will deepen the students' comprehension and application of tolerance.
