My Students

My students are book lovers, avid readers and enthusiastic students.

The students of my school are curious, compassionate and creative.

As students of both English and Spanish languages, books are very important for my students and are really valued. I am a 4th grade teacher at a K-8 elementary school in an urban area. Many of my students do not have access to books at home and rely on our school to get high quality books. Each day, students ask to get newer books from their favorite authors and if they can be the first to consult these books. There is a rumor about books and an emotion to read in our school.

At the end of the whole book, they love to share ideas, make a debate and see the different opinions that their classmates have in the book.

My Project

This new project will complete the last one, because we don’t have where put our books, Also we will write correct form our ideas and learn our mistakes over and over. They will be excited, because they are amazing students. We use too much these erasers and markers, because they participate too much in class and that make me happy. They need to improve their Spanish. If you will help us I will appreciate this all our life. They will write a correct sentences. Follow the grammar rules. When their mom listen them to speak Spanish they feel good and that make me happy.
