My Students

The students in my classroom are all considered at-risk of potential future academic failure. Although they are at-risk because of economic status, language acquisition or other family fractures, I consider them future stars that need a little extra. I was able to overcome some of these same obstacles so I know the students can also. For most of the students, this is their first experience with school or even away from family. My personal goal for all of my children and their adults, is to build a positive foundation of learning. By working toward this goal the students will be confident, independent individuals with the tools needed to succeed in life.

I provide them with an environment where they are respected as individuals and feel safe to express themselves.

From this, they can reach their full potential, which is beyond what they think they can accomplish. These accomplishments affect the families, students, and adults, which fosters future educational success.

My Project

We are looking for multiple materials to help us represent our emotions to begin recognizing our emotions and how our activities affect others in the class. The student will use the mirrors to picture themselves representing different emotions. They can use the stones to show how they are feeling. Using the stones with the mirrors or write on boards they can make a game of representing emotions.

All the materials are to help the students develop social emotional through play.

The dolls will help them to pretend play and work through different social situations. With character education being the end goal for all the students.
