My Students

At LSES, we proudly announce our new title of STEAM Academy! Here at our school we strive to give the children an abundance of opportunities available ranging from technology to STEM.

Our student population is highly dependent on free lunch and dual language, mostly English and Spanish.

A high percentage of students have Spanish speaking parents as their primary and only language spoken at home. This said, an extension of the learning process in the classroom during the day becomes a challenge. My students are curious little individuals with hope in their eyes. They yearn for the sense of an interactive and stimulating environment to be themselves.

A typical day in my first grade classroom begins in organized chaos, with breakfast in the classroom, LAUSD's move towards a healthy start of the day. Among the cheerful chatter as the students complete their first healthy choice of the day, and settle into their seats ready to learn, I am inspired to bring other healthy options into their daily lives! Now, it’s time to feed our hungry brains with technology!

My Project

Due to recent budget cuts, my school site was unable to purchase another year license of Raz-Kids. Raz-Kids is so beneficial to a child's learning, as it encompasses leveled reading and comprehension, and is technology based. The students at my school are familiar with the program and they, along with their parents, love the program and used it for years. The program is ideal as the children can access their accounts from home, and continue their great progress in the evening and on weekends. I enjoy the program because I can monitor the students progress online and even drop special assignments into their accounts. My past funded projects encompassed technology, iPads and notebooks, which is difficult to use in the primary grade without wonderful programs such as Raz. I value this program a lot and hope with your help, I can continue offering it to my students.
