My Students

My students live in East Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Mateo, San Carlos, and Belmont. They come from various social-economic backgrounds.

My students are taking on the challenge of learning a completely different language: Chinese, in an area where Spanish is the dominating world language.

My students come in every day with high energy and eager to learn. They often comment that this is the class they look forward to every day because it is fun and full of laughter. It is very important for my students to have fun while learning such a different and challenging language.

Creative and fun activities are an integral part of our lessons to provide students the opportunity to "Shine" through their creative works!

My Project

The writing on whiteboards and poster paper are a norm in my class. With the dry erase markers and color markers, students can practice writing their characters, sentences, as well as narrating stories.

The student's writing allows me to see exactly what they can do, as well as provide an easy place where the students can show their work, getting and giving feedback from the teacher and their peers, and collaborate together on their narrations.

Everyone knows that making mistakes is part of the learning process. Writing on the whiteboards makes it easier to make corrections. When the stories are complete, we can then transfer them to poster paper and share with the other classes as well.

However, markers eventually run dry, erasers stops erasing, and the roll of poster paper runs out. Your donation will help keep our students on track!
