My Students

I work in a community that has over 50 percent low income families. Therefore, the resources are scarce for our school. However, the students are bright, eager, and intelligent; they are ready to discover something new every day! They are curious and invested in their education.

This 1st grade class is a team of superheroes ready to learn and develop their minds!

This class is very special and has taught me so much about engagement and how teaching is more than just teaching to curriculum and instruction. Teaching goes far beyond that!

My Project

I have a group of students who are very special. When they put in effort, they shine like no other! However, they need help with social skills and how to get along with others and work as a team for a successful future.

These materials would be a great opportunity for them to work together and to learn the importance of what it means to be a team.

No matter where they go, they will need to be able to work with others in order to be successful. These materials are hands on and allow these students the movement and engagement necessary to learn how to socialize and get along while working together to achieve a common goal.
