My Students

My beautiful students range in age from seven to eleven years old. Unfortunately, most of my students already have obstacles blocking a successful beginning to their academic and social journey. Many live in poverty, struggle with the English language, and have extremely limited resources.

Even though they are faced with so many challenges, they come to school every day with a willingness and a desire to learn.

If you were to visit our classroom you would not know my students were faced with so many challenges because their positive energy and desire to learn are noticed right away!

My Project

Many of my student's experiences are limited. They do not leave their apartments very often nor do they play outside because it is dangerous. When they are in school we try to expose our students to as many life experiences as possible through their learning. Books are great and project based activities helps students work collaboratively. If, however, we had a projector, we could bring the world into our classroom using the internet on our big screen!

Having a projector will bring "the world" into our classroom and help make our learning interactive, exciting, and life changing.

Videos and educational games will help support our instruction but projecting the internet on our big screen will broaden our horizons because the possibilities will be endless.
