My Students

If I had to describe my students in one word, it would be RESILIENT! I am a second grade teacher in Clearlake, CA. I teach at a Title I school, in one of the most impoverished cities in the state. My students have gone through devastating wildfires and other unspeakable events in their lives, and yet they come to school with a smile on their face and excited to learn. I believe that my students can be anything they want to be when they grow up, and I strive every day to give my students a reason to stay in school by making sure they LOVE learning. I do my best to build upon each child's individual strength and passion. I am blessed to have some of the brightest, most artistic, kindest, and most appreciative children in my classroom. Please help me give these amazing students the best school experience possible! Together we can keep our students in school and break this cycle of poverty.

My Project

Collaborative work and team problem solving are a major component in my lessons on an everyday basis. Collaborative work provides the students with the skills necessary in higher education and in their future career. Right now my classroom is somewhat a hodgepodge of school furniture that doesn't allow for the most productive team work. I have asked the school for tables, but unfortunately, "there is no money in the budget." Circular tables for each team would facilitate our goal to work collaboratively. I also teach an after school art enrichment class for grades 2-4, and the circular tables would allow more room for our large canvas paintings and other various art projects.
