My Students

Imagine having to learn not only one language, but two, both reading and writing. The primary language in my students' home is not what is spoken to them while in the classroom. It is my job as their teacher to ensure that my children cannot only pass their assessments in their secondary language, but to even more importantly ensure that my children are taking away life lessons that can stay with them far beyond college.

"It takes a village to raise a child!"

As a teacher, it is my job to teach to a variety of students who learn in a very different way. My goal is to help students become active in their education so they enjoy learning new ideas and concepts that they can take with them throughout their educational career. Therefore, my mission is to touch the hearts of each student while instilling lifelong learning. I hope to give my students the skills and knowledge necessary for their successful futures as well as instilling eagerness and enthusiasm to know more and to question why. I want them to believe that there is not anything that they cannot do.

My Project

Sitting in the same seat all day long can be tough no matter what your age is! I am continuing to work on creating a classroom that allows students to learn in the most comfortable way possible! With having so many students within my class, I am still in need of more options for my students so that they do not have to wait for one to be done sitting in a certain seat before they are able to do so. Having this high table provides students the opportunity to either stand around it OR take a seat, their choice!
