My Students

My class is comprised of fabulous, energetic and diverse students. All students come with different backgrounds, cultures, emotional stability and economical status. Within this diversity we are learning how to synergize, learn from and appreciate our differences while learning the importance of becoming productive citizens.

We are learning how to ask each other questions instead of making judgements without perspective.

We are learning how to seek first to understand and then be understood. We are learning how to communicate through our differences, instead of holding grudges or name calling because others may not share the same beliefs or ideas. We are learning to see others' points of views and acknowledge that other perspectives are a right to that individual; even if we don't believe the same way.

One way to cultivate this knowledge is learning through written expression. We use the differences to strengthen each other, grow from each other, and learn how to work amongst those differences.

My Project

My students will be excited to see their thoughts come to life as they are printed on the classroom printer. They can aspire to be an author or writer or anything they wish to be. They will be inspired as their thoughts, opinions, retained information, and persuasions come to life in written form.

A goal is just a wish until it is written on paper.

As my students become excellent writers they will be able to visually see their writing improvements throughout the year as they compare their first writings to their last.

Please help my students be able to see their writing in print and proudly hold it in their hands!
