Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

I teach a first-grade dual-French immersion program in the heart of urban Los Angeles. Most of the students in our class are of Hispanic background. In our school, 96% of the students are of Hispanic background. About 91% of our school is classified as below the poverty line. Despite all the linguistic and socioeconomic hurdles we deal with on the daily, I am immensely proud to be teaching monolingual English speakers and bilingual Spanish speakers a second (or third language for some)—French.

With all the ruckus going on during this time of remote learning, however, it has become increasingly harder to motivate our students to care about academics.

This is understandable as our parents work several jobs to help provide and cannot necessarily support our in-home learning as needed. My goal is to encourage motivation to engage in academics in my students as we incorporate fun and creative manual activities that go along with our lessons.

My Project

Our class is a very eventful and lively first grade class that is constantly engaging its students in the most challenging yet entertaining of ways. The kiddos absolutely love it and the parents are constantly asking their children about these things... but there's only so much detail that young students can share about their days before they get confused or plain out bored of explaining.

With the mini instant film camera and film in this project, I hope to be able to capture some of the most iconic moments of first grade so that students may share with their parents about their most epic days at school.

In this way, both students and parents alike will be able to live and relive these treasured moments forever.
