My Students

I teach in an urban community in a western suburb of Chicago. My students come from many different cultural backgrounds. Our school is considered a low income school. Our students may have it more difficult but they always come to school ready to learn and with smiling faces. Our attendance rate is over 90%!

Our students are amazing.

I teach in a 4th grade co-taught classroom. So that means my students with special needs get to participate academically and socially in a general education classroom. I am there to help make accommodations and modifications to help my students on a level playing field. My wonderful co-teacher also helps. We share most of the duties in the classroom, and we both love what we do.

My Project

Our district has implemented a uniform policy to help provide a positive learning environment for all students. The Board of Ed. had determined that a consistent dress code is one component of creating a good learning experience.

Our students have been great at following the mandatory dress code with everything, but continue to have difficulty with finding and wearing sweaters.

Our building in the past has allowed students to continue to wear hoodies and even jackets that are not the right color (any shade of blue is what is mandatory). The school will be starting to be more strict about enforcing the no hoodie, only blue sweater/fleece in the classroom.
