My Students

I am a first-grade teacher at a very special Title I school. It is a public school that is a partial magnet which means we serve the neighborhood population as well as students interested in learning in a Spanish immersion environment. I teach 40 amazing, challenging, intelligent, deserving students who come from diverse backgrounds.

Our school community truly comes together to support the development of the whole child.

We believe each child has enormous potential and deserves the world. We promote diversity, inclusion, curiosity, and acceptance. Our curriculum is rigorous, but the students are up to the challenge and set high goals for themselves. The pride they take in their successes is amazing to see.

My Project

I am requesting chalk, swing balls, and hula hoops for our outdoor recess time.

Recess allows a child to mentally decompress and absorb what they've recently learned.

It also helps children improve communication and negotiation skills.

These supplies will help our 120 1st graders increas the amount of time they are moving each day. They will also facilitate their socioemotional learning as they work and play together. Our school is incredibly diverse being a Spanish immersional school, we have many countries represented in our student body. It is beautiful watching these children interact, learn, and play along side one another. They are so deserving of every opportunity. Thank you so much in advance for your support of these amazing children.
