My Students

Introducing the future! These second grade students of today will be our leaders of tomorrow. They are already creative, eager, considerate learners full of promise and questions. They come from diverse backgrounds that include children of both veteran and active duty military families. Their immediate ancestry includes a colorful range including Puerto Rico, Germany, Dominican Republic, Samoa, and locally homegrown just to name a few. They reside in an 89% poverty status for our neighborhood school and a number are being raised by grandparents, single-parents, shared guardianships, are in multi-family living quarters, or other more survival-mode situations.

These smart, funny, lovable and tenacious problem-solvers never give up, and I want to help ensure they never will!

This is my 34th year of teaching, and I can say with great confidence that what we do now, DOES make a difference. I've seen first-hand the positive results educators and supporters make in setting a strong foundation for our young people.

My Project

By having some furniture that is mobile, our students can "move it" out of the way when necessary. We build various engineering designs as part of our STEM work including towers. We need tables that can raise and lower. As we build tall structures, it is helpful for the table to be lower so students are not climbing in an unsafe manner to work on their project.

Limited space limits student creativity.

So we are trying to be creative in overcoming these limits.

We designed a large floor Venn Diagram to compare two communities in the story Abuela where we saw how New York City was different and like our own community. But we had to carefully roll up our diagram each day. It took away from the visual being there when we needed to reference it.

Sometimes we need things cleared away. Our Readers Theater needs different accommodations. The mobile stools will be perfect for quickly rearranging our seating area. These and folding, lightweight benches can be used for our guests who watch our performances and to have around our carpeted gathering space so everyone has a view during class presentations or lessons.

Easy to move tables, benches, and stools will allow us to focus on our tasks and not get restricted by our space. Although there are only 19 students in this homeroom class, three second grade classrooms will rotate through this room with our new Gemini Project next year.
