My Students

My students are in a low-income area. Their parents work a lot in order to support them. It is difficult for parents to take time off to be in the school volunteering. These students face struggles such as lack of food and basic necessities; yet, they are so resilient. I grew up in this community and faced many of the challenges that my students face every day. I chose to teach here with the hopes of inspiring at least one child. The students at our school have so much potential!

Each year my students love to help each other succeed, and they assist me in creating a classroom that cares!

I am in awe of the things they do to help each other daily.

The students at this school are becoming very excellent at technology, and they are always teaching me new things. Our school now has 1-to-1 technology, and the students are loving it. They are taking ownership of their learning through their data books and are reaching new heights all the time.

My Project

Last year I had my students record themselves reading in their Class Dojo portfolios. This helped parents know what their child should sound like reading out loud. I would have them read the story and record and then practice reading it and record again.

Having an iPad would allow my students to assist each other in recording with a clearer sound.

They will be reading a lot of science and social studies stories to encourage interest in those fields. I feel that it is very important for parents to know how I am expecting the students to read. This starts a discussion in the home or sparks an excitement that makes the student want to watch themselves read to improve and encourages parents to listen to the child read in order to improve.
