My Students

Imagine moving to a new country and starting school! You walk into a classroom with many other children who may or may not speak your language. These are the students I teach every day. I need to make learning as concrete as possible for them.

Many of my students have very limited schooling in their own language and are now thrust into a formal school setting.

We move from learning letters and numbers to reading and adding very quickly. Hoping they catch everything including a new language. My students have come from all around the world, from many different and often difficult situations. It is my goal to give them as many tools to ensure as much success as possible.

My Project

All play and no work, makes for mastery and retention! Trust me, I've been doing this for quite some time. I know what these little ones need and feed on. Education has to compete with the market of today. Students of all ages are restless. No time to sit still and learn.

This generation is hooked on television, technology and fast moving games!

Unlike our generation of board games and short stories, this generation needs CD's to read a book. Help my little ones master their learning by providing these classroom tools of instructional engagement! The math and reading games will let them practice skills taught without them struggling.
