My Students

Did you struggle when you were learning to read? Some of my students do.

My students are a terrific group of Third Graders in the Bronx.

They come from all parts of the world. Many are new to the country and new to English. We work hard to find exactly the resources that my students need to boost their interest in learning as well as their achievement.

My Project

We need whisper phones, sentence strip, and a few pocket charts. The whisper phones will make it possible for students to read quietly to themselves, without distracting the kids nearby. Students will use the pocket charts and sentence strip to build our classroom word walls and their grasp of vocabulary. These resources will support my kids' growth and interest in learning.

Become a partner in my students' success.

Help them build pathways to passion for learning and the achievement that goes with it. Help my kids acquire the words and the tools the need to reach the stars.
