My Students

My students live around South Central Los Angeles where every day can be a challenge coming to and from school. Regardless of the neighborhood problems, all the students come to school ready to learn something new and to express themselves to the class.

Our school is a Title I school, where many of our students are English Learners and all qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

100% of the students in my classroom are English Learners, and 75% are Long-Term English Learners (LTELs) who want to reclassify this year before going into middle school.

The majority of my students either lack computers at home or internet, and doing research or finding programs to help with learning at home can be difficult. Regardless of the hardships my students don't give up.

My Project

My 5th-grade class is working on a STEAM project for our 1st school STEAM fair. Students will be researching ways in which humans are affecting the environment.

The students will type, print, and post their information for the parents, teachers, and peers to see all of their hard work.

Many students want to print pictures and decorate their tri-fold, but unfortunately, we can only print in black and white in our classroom, and many students don't have color printers at home. We will be using this color printer and paper to print out their pictures for their presentation. The rulers will help students when aligning their papers on their poster and add any decorations they want to draw.
