My Students

My first graders come from diverse academic, linguistic, racial, and economic backgrounds. In one classroom I have students who are above grade level, non-verbal students with autism, and students new to the country. Regardless of their differences, they have a love for learning and being active six and seven year olds.

Each student comes to my first grade classroom excited to learn and they certainly leave my classroom with significantly more academic, social, and emotional skills.

They are curious about the world around them, avid talkers, and love to play and be active! I cultivate a learning environment that focuses on the whole child and embrace my students' development in both social and academic learning.

My Project

My school districts provides the minimum. Yes, I have quality texts to teach the reading curriculum, but teaching the content areas cannot happen without teaching social and emotional skills to students. Seeing the need to a social and emotional learning curriculum in my grade 1 classroom, I purchased one on my own and now need the texts to implement the fantastic curriculum. The texts will bring up topics of bullying, diversity, acceptance, kindness, responsibility, and honesty. I truly feel that it is my responsibility as a teacher to ensure that students are learning academic content, but also learning how to be good humans in our diverse world-- these texts will definitely help me teach this!
