My Students

I have been teaching for 20 wonderful years. I am so fortunate to teach these magnificent children. They have so many struggles that they face each and every day including poverty, language barriers, and gang violence. Yet, these 9-year-olds still come in each morning with a tremendous desire to learn and become the best students they can be. They already know that the key to making their lives better is through education. Please help support them on their journey. Thank you.

My Project

My students have a difficult time using voice and figurative language when writing. These incredible mentor texts paired with premade writing opportunities is just what my students need to succeed in writing. The kit also includes the three types of writing that is part of the 4th grade curriculum. In addition, my students are very interested in the American Revolution. Unfortunately, their textbook only spends one chapter on the war. These comprehension cards will give them a more in-depth look at this topic.

Finally, the paired reading passages will challenge my students to use higher order thinking skills to analyze two pieces of texts that have something in common.
