My Students

Our second grade class is a family of 25 energetic inquirers! My students attend a Chicago Public School, and they come from diverse, multicultural backgrounds. We love to be reflective and open-minded about the world around us!

We work hard every day to build our learning of the world around us, and challenge ourselves with new learning experiences.

My classroom has students ranging in abilities, as well as students from bilingual backgrounds. Our IB curriculum best supports their learning through student inquiries, explorations, and problem-based learning.

I am so proud and lucky to be a teacher for such hard-working and caring students!

My Project

My students all love to have ownership of their learning. By utilizing whiteboards, they are able to show their understanding and be proud of what they show to their peers. A new whiteboard collection with markers and erasers will allow us to all do our best at learning.

Currently, our whiteboards are hand-me-downs, used, and in unsafe conditions so that we have had to throw several away because of the matter they were in.

My whiteboard, as well, is in bad condition and is challenging to move around our classroom.

These resources will go a very long way in our classroom with our carpet time, as well as my instruction!
