My Students

I have the privilege of working at such a diverse school. My students come from a variety of cultural backgrounds. We are a school located in the South Bronx with many challenges. Despite the community our students are eager to explore and learn.

Our school is also considered a transitional school due to all the surrounding shelters.

I love working with this community. My students are faced with lots of challenges but somehow they make it to school each day with a huge smile. Seeing them being so resilient makes me want to work harder to provide them with all I can. My students are resilient, curious and creative. They love to read, create art, and use their imagination daily. Our classroom is a big ball of fun, where they come to create, explore and invent through new experiences.

As their teacher, it is my job to support them in all walks of life. When I enter into the classroom I become their friend, nurse counselor, mom, and so many other things depending on their arrival. I take pride in providing myself to my little ones and their families.

My Project

Keeping my children warm on a cold morning helps with their education as well as health. Some of our children come to school on cold days with no hat, scarf or gloves. I never blame anyone for the children not having times are hard for some .

Happy students Happy class!!!

Every morning we go on star fall to do our morning meeting. At this time we discuss the wether we use an avatar to show how to properly dress for the weather. if the day is rainy the student would put on a rain coat and rain boots, if the day is cold they would put on hat,scarf and gloves coat .I had a student say they did not have a hat or scarf they just had the hood from their coats. this was when i decided to ask for help. I just want my students to have what they need so I Thank You in advance.
