My Students

I have been teaching for twenty years in title one schools. My students have very little at home in ways of computers, video games or the latest shoes and clothing. But they have the biggest hearts and want nothing more than to learn and make the adults in their lives proud of them.

A majority of my students are learning English as their second language.

Being in a low socioeconomic area, even those who grew up speaking English, still struggle with basic vocabulary. They've never seen the ocean or even know what a fire place mantel is. Their experiences put them so far behind more privileged counterparts and I want to do everything I can to help them.

My Project

My 4th grade classroom is a perfect picture of what our country stands for. We have students from many different cultures and backgrounds. Recently, we have been home to many refugees coming from Afghanistan and Syria. These children are some of the most eager and hardworking students I've seen in my 20 year career. They are hungry to learn and want, so much, to be able to communicate and read with their peers.

As a 4th grade classroom, I have very little to support students who have no English language skills.

I am teaching the ABC's and basic beginning language skills. I am asking for materials that will help my students learn vocabulary with a picture library and phonics/comprehension skills with write and wipe reusable boards. All the materials are made to use with students learning English as a second language. These materials will not only help me to teach them in small groups, but they can also be used by my English speaking students to work with them as well.
