My Students

Welcome to my 1st grade class of wonder, learning, imagination, and kindness! We love to learn, and grow together. My class is a diverse class of learners. Some come from homes where Spanish is their primary language. I also have a wide range of educational levels with many students falling below grade level.

I teach in Camden, NJ- a city infamous for crime and poverty.

Despite these challenges, my students come to school every day ready to learn. They are eager to try new things and to soak in as much knowledge as they can. I am always looking for ways to enhance their learning. Sometimes it is difficult to get some items we need due to budget restraints. I do my best to make sure that we have the basics but would love to give my students the same materials and opportunities that their suburban peers have access to.

My Project

Every day we have a guided reading block. While I am working with a group of students on their targeted reading level, other students are in literacy centers around the room. The classroom library area is one of the favorite centers among students. There are a wide range of books for the students to pick from. However, the rest of the library area needs some updating and unfortunately there is no budget to do this.

My students do not have access to a traditional library but love to read.

Years ago our district eliminated librarians. Many of our students' families lack the transportation to get them to the city library. Because of this I try to keep a variety of books for the students to read but I want them to be comfortable. I would love to provide them with some flexible seating such as the jumbo bean bags and floor pillow. This will allow them to read in a more comfortable setting.
