My Students

My students are very curious and energetic. They are ecstatic and passionate about learning, just as I am about teaching them.

"My students make me feel proud.

People always say one person can't make a difference, but I have proof that these kids have made a difference."—Michelle Roosma

I teach in a Title I school where about 90% of my students are English language learners and come from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. A full 95% of my students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

My Project

"If we do not know how to respect the Mother Earth, we do not know how to respect ourselves."—Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

I would like to create a thematic unit about making Earth Day every day for my kindergartners.

As a whole class, I plan to read the books, "I Love the Earth" as an introduction to understanding more why we need to take care of our environment and our planet Earth. Then, I wish to create some engaging hands-on activities so my students can fully understand and realize that the Earth is our home, and it’s time for us to appreciate, love, and respect our home. This is why I want to teach my students to conserve energy, recycle, and keep our neighborhoods clean every day.

Students will write down ideas on why we can recycle, conserve energy, and how to keep our environment clean. At the requested kids table with chairs, students can draw and create posters to encourage others to recycle, reduce, and reuse items they have in the classroom or at home. They can make posters to put in the dramatic play area. At the dramatic play area, students dress up and take on roles as family members and community members to act out how they can recycle, reuse, and reduce items we have in our play kitchen.
