My Students

This year I have the honor of being a 4th Grade Reading teacher to 55 budding scholars, authors, explorers, and leaders. Working with this youth who reflect my own personal background (immigrant, low-income, ELL) has amplified not only the way I express myself as a teacher, but the ways that I want to support them in being successful students both in and out of the classroom.

It is my number one goal to set high expectations and model to my students that you can be a successful student who finds great passion in the work that they do despite any disadvantages they may face.

Each child in my classroom is curious about the world, and the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible and deserving group that will change the future!

My Project

Many of my students had never experienced flexible seating before they walked into my 4th grade classroom this year. Thanks to previous Donors Choose projects, these kids have been able to regulate their own learning environment through choices they have had the opportunity to make. Whether it's a high kitchen stool, clipboard and pillow on the floor, or a bouncy yoga ball, these scholars have been able to become aware of both their surroundings and their learning.

With the help of your kind donation, we will be able to give them yet another option to help them stay engaged and become less disruptive to their peers.

The single most item we are missing from our options is the "wobble stool," which rotates and moves, allowing movement that is quiet and discreet, while the student can fidget and work simultaneously. The 6 stools are greatly needed for some of my more antsy learners.
