My Students

Every day, my students continue to amaze and inspire me. They are bright, strong, caring, inquisitive, and full of life! Always willing to try new things; my students love being challenged to rise to their fullest potential. Their willingness to give 100%, despite the difficulty, is what sets them apart from the rest. In my classroom, I encourage them to 'Dream Big' and believe that anything is possible if they work hard and never give up.

The rich and diverse cultures students bring to the classroom builds a community of compassionate, empathetic, and caring individuals who will "go to bat" for one another in the blink of an eye.

There is always an outstretched hand to help raise each other up. The bond they have is truly unbreakable.

My students exemplify the meaning of resiliency to the fullest! Although most students are not able come to school prepared with the required materials, they do come prepared with what I consider the greatest keys to success... a commitment to learning and a great attitude! These kids are amazing, and I am beyond blessed to have the opportunity to see them grow each day!

My Project

As part of our AVID focus this year, my students are working on organization. Each year, students take responsibility in organizing their work, assessments, projects, and data check points in one AVID Work Binder. This binder allows the student to keep track of their progress throughout the year as they continue to set and work towards personal and academic goals. Organization is truly the key to success!

When students learn basic organizational skills in the middle school years, they develop strong successful tools for the future.

Our AVID Work Binder is set up by subjects: Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, College & Career, and iReady. Within each subject, it is broken down further into smaller more focused parts. For example, in Math and Language Arts, the binder is organized by Common Core State Standards. In other areas, it is broken up by quarters.

A top priority in my classroom are "data talks" in which I sit with each child and discuss their progress in major areas at the mid point and end of each quarter during the school year. This is extremely important when students reflect on strengths and set new goals to work towards.

At the 6th grade level, the amount of student work and data collection is impressive and I'd love for my students to have a organized way to keep track of their progress this year!
