My Students

Amazing! That is the word I would use to describe my students. They are curious about the world they live in and the world they don't. My students are like sponges; they soak up all the information/resources they are exposed to. I feel it is my responsibility to expose them to as much as possible. "You can't be it or dream it if you haven't seen it." My students come from high crime, low socio-economical areas. They are resilient. They leave all of the adult baggage they are exposed to at the door.

Our classroom is a place of peace, learning, exploration, ​and family.

I want to give my students the tools they need and deserve to reach their full potential. I want to prepare them to become and do what they were born to do.

It takes a village to raise a child. I am reaching out to my village to help support my endeavor.

Thank you in advance!

My Project

What is peanut butter without the jelly or lemonade without the lemons? We have access to Chromebooks and iPads but we don’t have headphones. It is impossible for 25 children to be on an individualized learning program without headphones. Can you imagine the noise, the distraction would be unbearable.

Peacefully listening and working on educational websites at their independent learning levels is a how my students will use their personal headphones.

Headphones make watching and listening to learning videos more engaging. The silence in the classroom allows me to work with a small group or an individual child without disruption.

The use of whiteboards would be a daily activity in my classroom especially in Math and Science. The students will have their personal whiteboard and use it for guided and individual practice. The whiteboards allow me to assess their learning and give feedback, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work.
