My Students

My students are special education, general education, and English as a Second Language students. They are inner city kids that come from homes that are very different than suburban kids.

In my school, we have twenty-six different countries represented.

Over half of our student population are ESL (English as a Second Language) students. We are currently a Level 4 school. Our students are hard-working and we are working an extended day to push them to become true lifelong learners.

My students come from homes where poverty is the norm. Sometimes they have no clue where their next meal will be from, or if mom/dad will be there when they get home from school.

My classroom is full of many different learners. I love going to work every day because, as an educator, I am challenged in many different ways. I feel like I am truly making a difference in these students' lives.

My Project

Here at Elm Park Community School we just created a brand new science lab. Our students need stools to sit at our new science tables to learn science...then the best part is to be able to use the same stools during science experiments. Students will use the stools to become researchers and scientists. Students will learn challenging concepts in science that will help them in team building skills and in life. Having science come alive would be a huge benefit for these students who are SPED, ELL, and low poverty students who struggle to learn and understand different concepts in Science.
