My Students

My students are very special. They are eager and excited to learn. My student come from diverse backgrounds and have many different learning styles, which allows me to differentiate instruction. My students conduct hands-on experiments in order to allows them to become active participants in the engineering design process, while having much fun! There are a multitude of students who enjoy learning, and my kids are one of them. I am so proud to call them my students, they are always enthusiastic and constantly curious beings.

Despite the fact that my students come from low or poor socio-economic backgrounds with 100% of the students receiving free lunch; the students in my class are very eager to learn.

My students are culturally exposed through virtual field trips and on and off- campus field trips. Within the community lies a grocery store, Boys and Girls Club, public library, fire station, and daycare centers that provide before and after school supervision for my students. Yet, the community doesn't have the educational tools that the students need to enhance their learning.

My Project

I teach impressionable kindergartners who come with little or no knowledge of the curriculum. My students are excited to come to school each morning and eager to learn. A great way to really push my students forward is by using guided reading. By working with students in small groups, I can target and meet individual needs.

A guided, kidney-shaped reading table will allow me to see and sit my students comfortably during the reading and writing workshop block of instruction.

It will allow me to work with each needs based instruction group for reading and writing other than sitting at their rectangular tables where it is a little more difficult to be hands on. All of my students will be a part of this reading experience. A kidney-shaped table will maximize the principles behind guided reading; therefore I know that every child in my classroom will benefit from more individualized instruction.
