My Students

I teach at a small campus. Our students are from Latinos and Black low-income families. So many of the students are of special populations and we do not always have the resources for these students to get differentiated lessons. Yet, we the teachers strive every day to be present for our kiddos and offer the support they need.

When I walk down the hallway in the morning, and I have random students hug me and greet me with their biggest smile, I know I'm right where I need to be.

It makes a huge impact when students trust you with their thoughts, hopes, and dreams. When they can't wait to see you or be in your classroom, you know you're doing your job.

I want our students to know we are thinking of them, we know their situation, and want to make things better and easier for them as we go into unknown waters. We will get through this together.

My Project

I teach ELAR, which are already tough subjects to teach, and engage our students. While we are at home, I want my students to be able to work on their assignments without worrying about having supplies. The wipe pockets are also a great tool for my students as we will be reading several stories and applying the skills to each of them. These will help students who do not have tablets or access to printers. The magnetic reading comprehension boards are an excellent resource for me. This way I can also model the way we think as we read and work on several stories to apply our skills. It helps my kiddos to have these reinforcements on the board for them to look at whenever they need it.
