My Students

My students come into my classroom every day excited to learn. They come from many different backgrounds and a variety of cultures, but they are all eager to be successful and make a difference in the world. Each one has a vision for their future.

For many of my students, school is the most stable environment in their lives.

I teach in a Title I elementary school in Florida where the majority of students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Their living and family situations are not ideal but each one has a desire to learn and make someone proud.

Some students are in transitional housing, while some live in homeless shelters or with multiple generations. Their individual needs may be different depending on the economic struggles they face but each day we work together to meet everyone's social-emotional needs. My students have empathy, compassion, and are kind. We are working to make the world a better place by learning together.

My Project

My students thrive with hands-on learning. Reading notes and strategies are always helpful at the beginning of learning concepts but students tend to feel they don't need them as they master the concept. VersaTiles allow students to work independently, self-check and correct their own mistakes. Error analysis has a tremendous impact on student learning and retaining key strategies and concepts.

Having autonomy of their learning builds self-confidence.

Many of my students struggle with comprehension but don't want to be pulled to the teacher table for practice. Having this option in our room will be beneficial for partner work, peer tutoring, and independent practice. Many of the articles and stories are science or social studies based which will reinforce knowledge In those content areas as well.
