My Students

I have loved my first year of teaching. One of the the most fun and most challenging parts about it is the unpredictability. On the first day of school, I mostly expected my students to come in from different parts of the city or maybe they had recently moved from a different state. However, in the first few weeks, I met two students who had moved only days earlier from different countries. I will admit, my classroom is not fully equipped to support them. One student moved from Honduras and the other moved from Guatemala. I was not prepared to meet all of the trauma that they have experienced while trying to teach them in their native language alongside students who have never heard people speak anything other than English.

I am hoping to get books in Spanish and classroom materials to meet the learning needs of all of my students.

My Project

The tissues and hand sanitizer are daily essentials to help students stay healthy to come to school each and every day. This is important as we stress that attendance is one of the most important things to be a diligent learner.

The books that are in Spanish from this project will allow us to teach students difficult concepts in their native language.

Other books will give them confidence reading in English after studying how to stay words and letters on their online program. Students will be able to have the context for our field trip in their first language and will be able to relate their learning to their English class.
