My Students

I am a first grade teacher in a Pre-K through 8th grade school. All of my students come from low income families, with 80% qualifying for free breakfast and lunch. Many of these children face poverty, violence, and obscenities on a daily basis. In spite of all of the negative forces they must face daily, they are all very inquisitive and eager to learn students. My students desire the stability and routine of a healthy school environment. We are engaged in our learning and are striving to become life-long learners.

My students are thinkers, dreamers, and doers.

They love to put on their “thinking caps” and stretch their brains to become the very best learners they can be. It is my desire to give them the tools they need to achieve their goals and realize their dreams.

My Project

One area my students struggle the most with is listening and speaking. I'm requesting A SWVL and Samsung tablet so that I can set up a video recording learning station. At this learning station, students will be able to video themselves reading aloud from books as well as writing they have produced themselves. This will allow them to playback and critique themselves, boosting their listening and speaking confidence.

In my classroom, we practice listening and speaking daily using cooperative learning strategies.

The addition of technology would give my students a much needed boost of practice in the areas of listening and speaking. Students who are confident in their listening and speaking abilities and will be ready to face the challenges of higher education and the workplace.
