My Students

I am a second year teacher at an elementary school in San Bernardino CA. I work in a very low income area of San Bernardino where my students do not have much. This year I have the most amazing bunch of students, they love to laugh and have such dedication I sometimes can not believe it is a first grade class. More than half of my students are beginning to read fluently and the others are right behind. My students are on task 95% of the time and I am constantly feeling like I need to reward their amazing behavior. I have a couple of kids who cannot get enough of reading, and another group of kids who absolutely love art. I would love to provide my students with everything that they need to succeed in my classroom and in the future. I cannot say enough good things about this class, except that they are just an awesome bunch!

My Project

I want to be able to provide my students with the best reading and listening corner that they need in order to be fully submerged in the world of reading. All of the tools I have listed will help me provide my students with a comfy place where they can read. It will also allow me to get the tools necessary to help my students learn and succeed in their academic journey. Things like chart paper are things we go through rather quickly, and always come in handy.

My students need quality headphones in order to enjoy their reading time on EPIC BOOKS while using their iPads.

I have also added some LEGO bricks to my list so I can provide my students with the tools needed to dive in the world of STEM education. I really believe all of these things will help my amazing students succeed in their educational journey.
