My Students

My classroom consists of ESL and special needs students. The ESL students enjoy learning but have difficulty with the language. The students with special needs love learning but they need that extra push to get them motivated. The students enjoy when lessons are integrated with technology.

They are able to navigate the apps in Google and can trouble shoot when their devices start to malfunction.

My children are very helpful and they work together to keep the class environment clean and organized.

My Project

Every year 5th grade students participate in the science fair, which is a requirement for all students in grades 5. Students have to choose an area of interest then research that topic and form a hypothesis. After which students will have to test their hypothesis by conducting an experiment. During the testing stage students will have to keep track of their data which will be displayed on their poster board. Many students can not afford to purchase the poster board and unfortunately it is very expensive for the teacher to make this purchase for 50 students. These poster boards are needed before November 1st. Thank you!!
