My Students

I teach in a low-income neighborhood school that was unfortunately in the Hurricane Harvey impact zone. Our community received over 50 inches of water in about a 24 hour period. Many of our students are English language learners which can be challenging. These students benefit from hands-on learning, which helps foster language acquisition and mathematics skills.

This year, before school started, Hurricane Harvey hit our area and water was in 80-90% of the homes in our town.

My children have very little to begin the school year with. I would like for them to have as normal of a school year as possible. I love teaching these children because they are eager to learn even with all the devastation, they have seen in their little lives.

My Project

Each time my children go to music class, the Music teacher always shows me what they have been working on that day. I am always amazed at what she can accomplish in such a short time. I would like to bring this love of music into my classroom too.

Through music, children learn to develop both sides of their brain- which in turn helps develop academic skills.

These items would be a welcome addition to our classroom and can be used not only during music and movement but also when we are counting words in a sentence, counting syllables and for story time. I am excited to bring a love of music to my students. This year Hurricane Harvey devastated our community and many of the students lost their homes and belongings. We had a rough start to the year, but they are resilient and love learning despite of the challenges we faced early on.
