My Students

I teach in a Title I intermediate school of 400+ students serving grades 3-5 in a rapidly growing city. My fifth graders are naturally inquisitive and energetic learners! They are 10-11 years old and thrive on active and engaging learning experiences.

My students range in abilities with some needing a great deal of extra support with reading skills, all the way to students who are reading at high school levels.

My students also run the spectrum of behavioral needs that require engaging activities and materials to keep them excited about learning. My students live in a variety of economic environments and every type of family situation.

My students come from a variety of cultural backgrounds and truly represent the rainbow of America's melting pot. Because of the varied backgrounds of my students, I try to create learning moments that build community, reflect all cultures, and encourage teamwork skills. Our classroom is a safe place to explore, learn, and make mistakes.

My Project

Remote teaching is HARD! Remote learning is HARD! All the things that make a classroom run like a well-oiled machine have disappeared. Rewards that once were given in the classroom for quality work, great participation, and effort don't work in the virtual environment. In an effort to increase student motivation, I want to send prize packs to students at the midpoint and end of each 9 weeks. Using a variety of materials that students love to earn, we hope to increase joy during the really hard situation of remote learning.
