My Students

My classroom consists of native Spanish speakers and Spanish learners but we have created a community where we stand by one another and learn as one. We know that learning goes beyond academics but knowing how to respect ourselves, each other and our community.

We are full of character, ambitious and eager to learn.

Together we are working on making our classroom feel more like home, bringing plants, home pictures, and sharing their favorite home books. We hope you can help make our classroom a cozy, inclusive learning place.

My Project

My students are eager to read and I want to offer an inviting cozy classroom library for them. This will give them the opportunity to explore fiction and non- fiction books and be able to choose and enjoy the best fitting one for them.

Everyone can enjoy to learn when we offer the best support for their way of learning.

As in any classroom, students have different learning needs and I would like to begin my journey of support by offering different reading options, such as: at their desks, soft seats on the ground with backs as well as without and soft plushy pillows.

I hope to engage children and help their love for reading grow. As we all know, practice makes perfect and I want them to want to read​ at any opportunity they get.
