My Students

I teach 35 amazing and academically gifted elementary scholars. They enter my classroom with big smiles, are happy, and ready to learn. Many students that come to our school do not speak English. We also have exceptional students included in our class.

We are a Global Magnet Title I school serving 65% low-income families who speak limited English.

We offer Mandarin Chinese and Spanish to our students. Our school also serves families whose parents work multiple jobs to help make ends meet.

My Project

Many students need to have dates in advance to keep up with all the assignments given in their classes. Having a large wall calendar and desk calendar will provide students with dates in advance to put on their Google docs calendars. Students need to learn how to be organized and also make sure they do not miss upcoming assignments. The pens and post-it notes will be used to list the assignments on colored paper during our Zoom classes. This is also an easy way for students to see assignments by using different colors for each subject.
