My Students

I am a Reading Specialist in a diverse neighborhood school. I work with students for whom English is a second language, children with severe reading disabilities, behaviorally challenged students as well as with low socio economic status.

These students are passionate about extracurricular activities where they can showcase their talents.

Sometimes the classroom setting can be frustrating for some of these students. It is heartwarming to see how they are motivated and shine in an activity in which they are interested.

My Project

Being a part of the Running Club will enrich their experience. It is our goal that we will create a supportive and encouraging team of runners that will represent our school. The team practices from March to race day. The season ends when they participate in a 5K race with other schools in our district.

Not only will they achieve a personal goal, but also reach our community goal in supporting the Brad Schoener Music Foundation.

A portion of the money raised will go towards the purchase of musical instruments for students in our school district.

We hope that this experience will give the runners confidence and self worth that will carry over into the classroom.
