My Students

My students in Brooklyn are from diverse backgrounds. They are eager readers and writers of the 21st century. The stories they read and write come alive, not only from written texts but also from media text (e.g., social media and the like). Our school uses the Mood Meter based on R.U.L.E.R. components from Yale University that help us enhance our learning in the classroom by focusing on social-emotional learning.

In our school, our population focus is on English Language Learners and students with disabilities and because of this, we put our students' character first, which then, joins hands with our content that we teach.

When we put our students' emotions first, we build trust, empathy, and loyalty within our community of learners.

Our readers and writers are our leaders of tomorrow. They are our convincers of the present and our future. Our students use their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills to build a better future for themselves, their families, and their local communities.

My Project

The STEM Tools for mindfulness includes a table for conferencing, a chair for VIP students, brain teasers, and a team-building game. This will be accompanied by the engineering method in Science where students are asked to come up with a question and a plan to help answer that question. This connects to ELA because students need to raise their awareness about certain situations and as a result, can gather evidence (details) to prove a theory (claim). These STEM tools for mindfulness can be used during enrichment and advisory classes to help enhance problem solving skills and critical thinking skills.
