My Students

We believe every child can learn if we challenge, guide and provide the tools needed. By the end of the year, all children will improve their literacy skills, science and mathematical skills. Our students will be more active, play together, have healthier lives and learn about tolerance among them and our school community, which will aid them in being more successful in the next grade. The challenge comes with the lack of materials, equipment ​and all the budget cuts.

We have a high number of free or reduced price lunch students in our school and district.

Our classrooms are an all-inclusive model, where all children learn together. Because of the bad economy, some of our students are homeless at times. They are immigrant English learners from Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Spanish learners from the community around the school. My children are so eager to learn new things. Our wonderful staff in our community school continues to learn and implement new ways to teach our students and strive to help everyone succeed.

My Project

My dual language learners need Spanish books. My students will use the Spanish books to continue developing Spanish reading skills and learn about other cultures. Spanish reading comprehension and reading fluency skills will help all my students in their educational experiences in our dual language program.

Our school concentrates in bilingual and bi-cultural learning.

We learn about all countries and cultures where Spanish is spoken. With the books, they will be able to research information and learn more during our classroom units and be able to share with others what they learned. My students will be better prepared with the basic skills and unique information to continue in second grade and beyond, during their education in our wonderful dual language program in our school.
