My Students

Our class is filled with fifth graders who are eager to learn daily! While growing up in the inner city has its challenges, our fifth graders push through their adversity as they engage in literacy, and explore science and math. Their desire to become more and surpass their circumstances makes teaching exciting!

As a product of this very district, investing into my students is investing into the community that gave me an opportunity.

These children are just as capable as their counterparts in other districts. They just need the same access to a plethora of resources to help level the playing field.

My Project

This year my students will be asked to work cooperatively on numerous assignments. Whether it be pairs or small groups, it's always nice when they can move around the room.

Since they can't bring their desks with them, clip boards will be extremely beneficial for them!

They will use the clip boards to solve math problems posted around the room, make comments and provide feedback to their peers about projects, as well as write notes while on the rug.

Students will also use the colored pencils to help highlight, and close read texts to help improve their comprehension and understanding!
