My Students

I teach a diverse group of 25 kindergartners in a high poverty neighborhood. Every morning, my students enter our classroom with a lot of energy and an appetite for learning. I can see their eyes quickly scan the room to see what exciting learning opportunities await.

I teach at one of the most diverse schools in the country.

I absolutely love it! My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, but they all love to learn and experience new things. As their teacher, it is my goal to motivate my students and teach the whole child. All of my kindergartners come from diverse backgrounds, languages, and academic abilities. Many of them come from families living in poverty and face various challenges. I teach English learners and students with special needs such as autism, ADD, and ADHD. All of my students come to school every day excited to learn. They are a great group of kids who love school and love learning!

My Project

Our school follows a PBIS approach as a model to approach good behavior. My students have worked hard to learn the Coyote Way: Have Respect, Model Kindness, Make Wise Decisions, and Be a Lifelong Learner. I model these behavior expectations with my class and also teach lessons on being safe and healthy. The kids are doing so well with PBIS that I would like to reward them by allowing them to choose an app from the Apple App Store for any subject area, including Social Emotional Learning (SEL). The Apple gift card will allow me to fund the apps they chose.

My students have learned positive behavior strategies, and they deserve a reward!

They are motivated to be good citizens internally, but extrinsic rewards are always fun. I am so proud of their progress and resilience during a global pandemic. Thank you for supporting my amazing kindergarteners.
