My Students

Our students are kind, unique, courageous, and passionate about learning about themselves, each other, and the world around them.

About 40% of our students know at least two or three languages and are resilient, excited learners who look forward to being part of our school family on a daily basis.

And about 85% receive free or reduced-price lunch.

Part of looking like and feeling like a family is taking care of one another's needs—so we are starting a donation closet!

My Project

About half of my students come from households that speak multiple languages and come from a variety of continues.

Students deserve to see themselves in, and relate to the characters in stories - and it is our job to make sure that happens.

I want to built and diversify the library that students have to choose from, as well as the books that I have access to so that my students feel a stronger connection to what they are learning. One way that I can support that connection is by intentionally choosing read aloud materials that students can relate to and see themselves in.
