My Students

Our school represents a large variety of students from various countries all over the world. One hundred percent of the students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch, and the school receives Title I funds.

Want to know one of my favorite parts of my job?

I love seeing the change that students undergo over the course of the year. I am fortunate enough to see kids develop ways to express kindness each and every day. They use manners that weren't present in August. I have seen students who loathe reading turn into book lovers.

Few things make me smile like seeing my kids pull out a book when they have an extra few minutes. My classroom is full of faces and personalities that will impact our future world. As a teacher, I believe it is my job to do everything I can to make sure that impact will be a positive impact!

My Project

I love to use chart paper to make anchor charts to keep around the classroom for students to review their learning! As I teach, I represent my learning goals onto chart paper, next I have the students answer questions, or add ideas by writing on Post-it notes and affixing the notes to the anchor chart. The students love to see their own ideas displayed around the classroom. Finally, I'll have the students draw what they are learning, and also hang their masterpieces around the classroom, or in the hallway. I start them out with the anchor chart and they keep the ball rolling by adding information on their post-it notes and then drawing for further internalization of the concepts taught. Chart it, Post it, Draw it... I'm so excited for all of the learning that I know will come from this project!
