My Students

At my school, the teachers, staff, parents and community strive to give our students the best we can. Many of our students and families struggle with things like structure, routine, food and finances. Language is another factor that makes our students so special, but also can create another hurdle for them to jump. We are a melting pot of languages, cultures, personalities, dreams and goals. We will learn so much together and even more from each other.

When working with students who have struggles outside of school, it is important to create a community that is safe and supportive.

Students need so much more than math instruction and reading groups, they need love, understanding and strategies for success. They also, need healthy coping strategies and ways to calm their crazy world.

We are very proud to be a team. We work together each and every day to tackle math problems, understand texts, ask questions and help each other to do our best. Our team is dedicated to become the best readers, writers, thinkers and workers that we can be!

My Project

We are in need of small movable and flexible whiteboards in our classroom. Our students engage in small group work daily with and without the teacher. Whiteboards are a very important tool. Our whiteboards could also be called focus boards. They keep us on track and focused throughout the lesson and provide us with tools that we may need during discussions. These whiteboards are much more manageable for small group instruction.

We post our objectives, our focus, our thinking and talking stems on white boards to engage in big learning.

Another reason we need these white boards is our book club work. When I meet with a book club on the rug a large white board forces me to stand and takes me out of the book club. With these whiteboards I can get down on the rug with my fellow readers and feel as though I am a part of their book club. This also helps my students to realize that I am not leading the discussion and they are just as much a member of the reading community and discussion. Please help me get down on the rug and read with my students!
