My Students

Our second grade class is a family of 25 energetic inquirers! My students attend a Chicago Public School, and they come from diverse, multicultural backgrounds. We love to be reflective and open-minded about the world around us!

We work hard everyday to build our learning of the world around us, and challenge ourselves with new learning experiences.

My classroom has students ranging in abilities, as well as students from bilingual backgrounds. Our IB curriculum best supports their learning through student inquiries, explorations, and problem-based learning.

I am so proud and lucky to be a teacher for such hard-working and caring students!

My Project

Please help donate to our 2nd grade classroom! Our 25 bright students are working hard to keep our materials safe, yet without proper storage, they will get damaged. The resources will be used to organize our library, store books, and protect IB materials and resources year round. Keeping these materials safe will allow us to use them for years, as well as allow us to use them multiple times throughout the year.

We have resources that we don't want to go to waste!

Our library bins need more support, and our IB resources need specials homes, so we can use them all year round. Please help contribute what you can to our classroom for our materials to keep them protected everyday!
