My Students

Every morning we start off the day with a chant: This is the way HEY! We start our day HEY! To get the knowledge HEY! To go to college HEY! But don't stop there HEY! Go annyyywhere HEY! This is the way HEY! WE START OUR DAY HEY!

I am honored and humbled to teach an amazing group of hardworking and determined first graders.

My students attend a public school in Minneapolis. My students come from low-income communities, and all receive free or reduced lunch. All of my students are Hispanic, and the majority of my students are learning English as their second language. Some of my students are the only person in their house to read and speak English. We will be working hard all year to achieve our big goal of reaching second grade! My students work hard every day to accomplish this goal. At the young age of 6, my students are already demonstrating grit and determination that will get them to and through college.

My Project

As I continue to build our classroom, it is vital that my students have more math manipulatives. They learn best through hands-on learning! My students will use the books, literacy centers, and writing materials to grow their brains and increase their reading fluency. This will put their reading readiness into high gear! My students need additional supplies such as whiteboards, clipboards, and markers to participate in class and have all the materials we need to maximize our learning. My students need furniture and additional carpets to make our classroom feel like home, as this is the only home for many of them. My students need more toys and games for the many days of indoor recess (UGH!)

Any donation will improve my classroom tremendously.

Each student deserves an equitable education. Please help me in ensuring that each student is given the exceptional education they deserve.
