My Students

Our population is very diverse. We have many nationalities, cultures, and abilities. We are a Title I school in a very low-income community, where most children receive free lunch. We have an in-depth special education program, a gifted and talented program and a dual language program. My computer lab is used by students in pre-kindergarten through 5th grade.

An elementary school classroom is like no other place in the world.

It is a home for little ones for six hours a day. Teachers not only provide an education in math, reading, and other school subjects, they provide stability, love, acceptance, and support for amazing little people. Teachers educate the whole child. Personally, I strive to teach values, love, and acceptance in my room, as well.

My Project

Pig and Pug is a story of an unlikely, but adorable, friendship. Pig lives on a farm with lots of other animals. All the animals have friends, but Pig does not. One day a new animal comes to the farm. Pug has a curly tail like Pig. Pug plays in the mud like Pig. Pug even snorts like Pig. Pug is not a pig, but maybe, just maybe, Pig and Pug can be friends!

My students need copies of the book Pig and Pug to share for our visit from Zenaides Medina, author, and his pug who inspired the story!

My students need to see that we can all be friends, even if we are different like Pig and Pug. They also will have the unique experience of meeting the author, hearing about his writing process and meeting his own pug , star of the story!
