My Students

My students are wonderful!! They are a group of diverse learners with different learning challenges. My students range in ages from 6-12 and grades from 1st-4th.

My students strive to always do their best!

They are eager learners and hard workers. They face academic and/or behavioral challenges, but they accept their challenges and work side by side with all students in a regular education setting. Our school is a unique Milwaukee Public School where students are provided with an opportunity to learn in either a monolingual or Italian immersion program. We have over 550 students that represent well over 20 countries. Many students are unable to speak English when they enter but learn quickly. Many of my student families struggle with economic challenges, family dynamics, and/or housing displacements. Despite all of these factors, my students attend school with a smile and a willingness to learn!

My Project

As a teacher, I care about helping my students to become confident, caring, considerate citizens of the world. Picture books about social-emotional issues can assist my students to think deeply about their own, as well as other's, feelings and social issues. Sharing these books with children of all ages will help them develop the ability to identify with others, develop empathy, and talk about their feelings. My focus with the titles I have chosen will assist children with fears, resiliency, feelings, overcoming challenges, self awareness/identify, friendships, self-control, grief, kindness and risk taking. By building my classroom library with books focusing on social/emotional growth, I will be able to teach specific skills or support students when they are in need while also increasing their exposure and love for literature!
