My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds and immerse themselves daily in the cultures of their peers through learning two languages (English and Spanish).

Our students strive for academic excellence in both languages in all academic subjects which makes them very unique.

Each child brings something special to the classroom through their experiences and areas of expertise. They make our school an exceptional place to be through their determination to be successful academically while embracing the many cultures that come together within our walls.

My Project

Every day students have a dedicated amount of time where they have the ability to choose a book that interests them to read independently. Additionally, each night students are required to read and write a response for homework.

Our current classroom library is in need of new and exciting books to keep students engage in reading and help peak their interest in novels.

These new books in particular help to finish out incomplete books series such as the Trials of Apollo and Spy School. Additionally, incorporating books like Left Out, Aggie and Me, and My Brother's Name is Jessica also help in providing insight into characters whose lives help students better understand the value of respecting and learning from an individuals differences. Lastly, some students rarely opt to read books which lack pictures such as Dork Diaries. Our hope is that books like the Addison Cooke series, Rosewood Chronicles, Apothecary, and Three Times Ugly may change those student's minds when it comes to reading a novel.
