My Students

My students come to school speaking languages other than English at home and are expected to learn and understand all the same curriculum as their English speaking peers.

My students are smart, driven and ambitious children who love to learn and are doing so while learning content and English simultaneously.

My students are in classes with students who speak English only and also students who speak English and other languages.

My students are special because they come from various backgrounds and parts of the world. I teach in a Title I School in NYC. Eager to grow and learn in school, they do not let this hold them back. They work hard every day.

My Project

A new Carpet and floor cushions will allow my students the flexibility to gather in a more comfortable way on the floor for small group instruction. Floor cushions will give my students the option to sit in various spots around my classroom to complete independent and partner tasks.

A carpet and floor cushions will make my students feel more comfortable while learning in small groups.

We often gather on the floor for mini lessons and then break off into partnerships. Cushions and a new carpet will encourage my students to utilize the private spaces in our classroom for more focused learning.
