My Students

Hola! I have taught bilingual (Spanish) kindergarten in the Chicago Public School system for the past 11 years. The students I teach come from predominantly low-income families and are all English Language Learners. Every year, I am excited to provide my young students with experiences and resources that they otherwise may not come across. This year I am one of two co-teachers teaching an inclusion-model bilingual kindergarten, meaning our classroom has both diverse learners (students with special needs) and typically developing students.

I am passionate about teaching early childhood and love exposing my young students to new experiences, getting them excited and invested in their own learning!

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read about me and my project!

My Project

A seven-hour school day is long for most anyone but for my 27 kindergartners, all new to full-day school, it can seem like an eternity. Despite recess and various movement breaks, there is a lot of sitting that takes place in the traditional school setting.

My young students enter into my classroom with various needs; I feel that by providing them with seating options it will lend itself to increased success when it comes to their ability to focus, participate, and learn.

Wobble chairs at differing heights, and a floor table with accompanying seats will offer students an alternative to the traditional classroom tables and chairs. Doesn't everyone (adults included!) learn best when given a choice?
