My Students

This year, I am co-teaching with my friend. Together we are working with 45 fourth graders. Our demographic of students include ESE and ESOL students who need lots of hands-on and individualized learning! Students rotate through centers where they receive one-on-one attention, technology lessons, hands-on instruction, as well as art-infused lessons. We try to appeal to everyone's learning style as well as individual learning goals. We look forward to working with this group of students this year!

My Project

In Fourth grade students are responsible for taking the FSA Writing assessment. Typically when students enter 4th grade, writing essays is brand new for them! This can be a tedious and frustrating time of the day for some. This is why I would like to create Writing Workshop centers that not only incorporate essay writing with the teacher but also allow students creative writing time, handwriting practice, as well as STEM integration writing. I hope that these centers inspire young writers to develop a love and interest for Writing rather than a frustration!
