My Students

My students come excited to learn in two languages, as part of our Spanish Immersion Program. Parents voted to have uniforms as the dress code for the students. This has helped my students to stay focused on learning and it has provided a positive learning environment for each student. I am enriched by my students' diverse cultural, linguistic, and economic backgrounds. More than 85% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. All of my kindergarteners students get the amazing and unique opportunity to start learning in English and Spanish from K to 12. Close to 25% of my students' first language is English, and 50% of my students' first language is Spanish, and 25% speak another language. They all share the wonderful journey to graduate from high school bicultural, bilingual, and bi-literate and it all begins in my kindergarten classroom.

My Project

My students will benefit from having the right writing tools in the right place during writers' workshop. My students come eager to learn to write their names, letters, sight words, sentences and paragraphs and they even get to write their first books in kindergarten.

It all starts with the right tools such pencils and pencil pouches for all of their writing tools.

My students will learn how to stay organized and take care of personal writing materials from the first day in kindergarten. They will be able to keep their writing tools such as pencils, erasers, crayons, and sticky notes in their individual pouches. This will allow them to stay focus in their writing skills. It will be prevent students from wasting valuable time looking for pencils or other writing materials. There will be times when they still share community materials that will be be used as often to provide positive and on going opportunities for sharing.
