My Students

I am a general education fourth grade teacher at an inner city public school that offers general education instruction to students who are eager to approach learning using the most innovative ways that can be given to them for success.

My school is centered in a community deemed as low socioeconomic and a high population of English language learners and special needs students.

My students are energetic, yet extremely challenged in promoting higher order thinking skills due to the limited resources and lack of funding to our school community.

My Project

My classroom is very diverse academically and socially. With the state of education today, our classroom resources are extremely limited for richly exposing students to the information needed in order to build knowledge and increase success levels. My vision is to be able to offer them tangible resources at school that will allow them to be updated on world events. Moreover, I desire to give them opportunities to discover ways in which they can help to make a difference in our world.

My students are destined to be leaders that will make a remarkable impact on our world.

My students can become even more intrigued with current events if the resources were readily available, especially for my ELL students who struggle with concepts being taught in my learning environment. The connection of home and school is important to me. I desire for children to enjoy learning and share those experiences with their parents. I believe that having copies of Scholastic News magazines will give them the means to reflect and explore on our world to have a more engaging experience to bring their learning to the forefront of their lives.

I am convinced that their path to success begins with me. I would love for you to partner with me to ensure that their lives are transformed in a positive manner.
