Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

I have been lucky enough to become a teacher with the district that I went through as a child. Our school is a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, Title I school that focuses on the arts. A majority of our students come from low socioeconomic statuses and have experienced things that most have not. Last year, our staff and students faced the Carr Fire and some lost everything. While this would cause some to give up, we have become stronger together and are prevailing.

All of our students are being given a quality education, including the skill sets to become members of a global society, but most of our students are not coming to school with the supplies that are needed.

Therefore, it is imperative that I provide them with what they deserve. My hope is that with the education that our school provides them, whether academically, socially, or emotionally, our students will strive to become more than they've ever imagined!

My Project

Scholastic News takes current events and creates nonfiction articles that are at grade level. This makes learning about current events more approachable and engaging for students. We would be able to teach cross-curricular lessons with each news magazine, and incorporate it into our curriculum each week.

A Scholastic News subscription would make our first graders more globally competent and aware of things going on around them.

Every student would have their own copy of the magazine each week, allowing them to annotate where needed. When done studying a current event, they would then be able to take it home. This creates a great school-to-home connection and allows for deeper conversations to take place with parents.
