My Students

Describing what makes my students special is a question hard to tackle as each individual student possess unique charm, intelligence, ability and overall personality. As their teacher, I take great delight in sharing learning and growth as I try to achieve my ultimate goal of creating enthusiastic life-long learners who work towards achieving to their maximum potential.

My students, in spite of the circumstances that come from growing up in a commonly neglected low socioeconomic community, have the same potential as any other group of children.

In their eyes I witness the brightest of sparks whenever they make a discovery or master a challenging skill. My students have a true and honest desire to not only learn, but also to accomplish and become a positive member of their community.

Unfortunately, this potential, spark and desire is often extinguished by the numerous odds against them as they repeatedly fall victim to their environment. I am saddened by the the massive loss that occurs in our community. I am angered by my inability to change this in the large scale of things. However, my sadness and anger will not stop me from changing this course for at least one little person.

My Project

Scholastic magazines are super fun and interesting. Students always look forward to their high interest and fun content. As a teacher, I appreciate the quality of the articles and find these magazines to be a great extension to the themes covered in the classroom.

Exposing students to a variety of reading materials helps cultivate a love of reading.

Giving students an opportunity to explore a variety of subjects helps promote curiosity and a love of learning. Scholastic magazines are accessible to students' reading levels and also help promote their reading development as their articles are composed using grade-appropriate vocabulary and content.
