My Students

Our school is a Title One school located in a lower-socioeconomic (high poverty) area in Salem, OR. Many of our students come from bilingual households where their first language is Spanish. Many of our students have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect and far more adverse childhood experiences than any person should.

My classroom is made up of twenty-five, energetic, bilingual kindergarten students.

They are amazing individuals who come with many differences. As bilingual students, they are building their identity as multilingual and multicultural learners. These students are paving the way to create awareness of a cultural and linguistic society. I am honored to serve them and share a classroom with them.

Kindergarten is where the adventure begins! Your generous donations and support will help me create a dream learning experience for all my students.

My Project

Spanish resources are scarce, and without them, it is difficult to truly give students the learning experience they deserve. As students become bilingual and bi-literate, it is important for students to have access to a variety of leveled books in Spanish.

These Spanish books will provide all my students with an opportunity to have leveled books to strengthen their literacy skills in Spanish.

When working with a student or a group of students to develop their decoding abilities in Spanish, having a variety of books to choose from, makes learning more meaningful for students. I look forward to adding more books to my classroom library so students can learn to love reading.

Other hands-on activities such as the flashcards, word builders and syllable charts will help students strengthen their literacy skills in Spanish by providing hands-on opportunities to share with their peers.

Thank you in advance for your generous donations! We greatly appreciate it.
