My Students

I teach multiple classes of third graders each day at a Title I school where over 90% of students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Despite the limits that they face each day, it is my everyday pride to see them come to school happy and eager to learn.

Not all students learn best in the same way.

This fact will always serve as my inspiration to explore all the possibilities in order for them to succeed. I make sure that they feel safe and loved, are provided with high expectations, and learn the value of hard work and perseverance. They master not only their skills in math, but they also realize the values needed to be successful in LIFE.

My Project

As I give my best to cater to their individual needs, I aim to explore flexible seating options in my classroom. I am excited to introduce wobble stools as an option for students that learn best from moving while they learn.

It has already been more than a year since Hurricane Harvey happened, but we still feel the effects from most of our students whose homes have been displaced due to flooding.

Despite any circumstance, it is very noticeable in my students that they are eager to go to school where structure through routine and constant learning made them feel that they belong to a safe place, and that they found a second home within the four walls of our classroom.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement. My students and I sincerely appreciate any support in order to help us have a classroom that allows them to learn to the highest degree!
