My Students

My students are brilliant second and third graders. They impress me daily by how they enter our school, a culture very different from their culture at home. For instance, many of them live eight or ten person families in a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment. They bravely come into my classroom where they are expected to communicate all their desires, needs, and inquiries in English, which for 90% of them is their second language. My students could also be described in the following manner: they live in East Palo Alto, a historically low-income area; 98% of the students at our school receive free and reduced-price lunch, a correlate for low-income; 90% are language learners.

And yet, they are so much more than these demographics.

They have passions, some of which are training dogs, art, reading, traveling to Mexico, Fiji, and Tahoe, camping, gardening, etc. They have dreams; some of which are, owning a dog or cat one day when she moves out of the apartment that does not allow pets, becoming a teacher, moving up reading levels.

My Project

Having a whiteboard table in my classroom will be an amazing addition for student engagement. This is a table that can be written on and wiped off. I am hoping that this table is going to encourage visual creativity and brainstorming in all academic areas. This table is going to help create a fun learning environment for my students to collaborate throughout our day. I envision my students to working together on our math problem of the day, and practicing writing sentences and sight words with the help of this table. This table will provide a fun engaging way for my students to prove their thinking.
