My Students

My students are English Language Learners in an urban school setting. They love to learn, play, and move! My classroom is literacy based and students enjoy reading, writing, songs, and listening to stories. Students face many challenges and work hard to learn how to read, write, listen to, and speak English. In our school, we have ELL students from a variety of backgrounds that speak Spanish, Somali, Swahili, Arabic, Chinese, Burmese, Turkish, and Russian. Some of our ELL students are refugees or have come to the US to escape domestic violence or extreme poverty. We are in an urban school where many students are from low-income homes or public housing and all students receive free lunch. Despite these challenges, my students are smiling, happy children that are eager to learn and succeed. Thank you for your interest in my students!

My Project

My students learn in small groups and centers most of the time. Because of this, we could use a kidney shaped table to learn at. This would make it easier for me to help students and listen to their reading during guided reading. It would also provide more room than we currently have so students aren’t squished and have room for their materials. We also need more flexible seating options and my students love bouncy ball seats! We only have a couple and could use more so that they’re available to more students. Having the ability to wiggle helps students focus on their learning.
