My Students

My second graders embody scholarship, tenacity, advocacy, and respect in their fight for social justice. When asked about their favorite subject, some will inevitably say recess, but many will talk about how much they loved counting money in Math or exploring the issue of lack of access to affordable, fresh, and healthy food in low-income communities in our Social Justice Thematic Unit or acting out fairytales in Reader's Workshop or using claim, evidence, and reasoning while doing close readings.

In our inclusion classroom, they embrace and support each other's differences since they understand that they all have strengths and areas of growth.

We embrace the idea that fair doesn't always look the same since each student has unique needs and abilities. Students use empathy and creativity to collaborate with one another so that they can succeed as a crew.

My Project

My classroom is currently bright and colorful to invite students into the space and make it a safe place where they want to be. However, my classroom library is nothing but bare hardwood floor and the rug that was passed down to me for our whole group lessons is not only old and stained but a dull gray.

These new rugs would match the bright set-up of my classroom and provide students with comfy spaces to read and collaborate with one another.

My students' favorite center during Guided Reading is Partner Reading, but partners currently have to sit at a table or desk, instead of being able to really get cozy with a good book together in the library.
