My Students

I teach students who attend a Title I school in the Southwest, where students are valued and celebrated in every classroom, but once they step out of the safe boundaries of the school, they are often underrepresented in society because of their demographics.

All of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch, and 100% of them have great potential!

My students come to school daily, where they are fed through words and nutrients, but leave to temporary shelters due to high mobility.

My Project

Like any other teacher, I only have one school year, nine months or 180 days to give the best, quality education to my students!

Within one short, school year, I must expose my students to mentor, nonfiction, fiction and predictable texts to ensure they have exposure to quality stories, can use books to complete simple research projects, listen to books with thematic storylines and to strengthen their reading skills in guided reading.

This year, I have the opportunity to teach a diverse group of learners in kindergarten and first grade. With these books, we'll use them during our read-aloud, have guided reading groups using Junie B. Jones chapter books and the use the spring thematic books for closed reading to integrate science and social studies in our units of study.

I've also requested a copy of "Here I Come!" for each student to support their transition to the next grade-level!
