My Students

My 4th grade students fun, loving, extremely motivated, and really love learning. They come from diverse backgrounds and love learning from each other on a daily basis. If you were to walk into my classroom, you would witness how hardworking they are! Over the past 4 years, my students' enthusiasm, excitement, and overall love for learning has been the driving force behind the love I have for my job! Seeing the lightbulb go off in their heads when they learn something new really makes this job worthwhile. My students are at all different levels of ability, have all different learning styles, but all share a love for technology!

With the overwhelming increase in technology in today's world, my students would thrive with the opportunity of having technology at the tip of their fingers.

They really need a variety of different tools to be successful, and keep them engaged in learning!

My Project

Technology is essential in our classroom and really engages students in learning by making it more exciting! My students are extremely tech savvy and crave that technology usage any chance they get!

In my building, every classroom shares the laptops and tablets and this makes it very difficult to use them when we need to.

My school focuses heavily on project based learning, and these Amazon Fire Tablets would provide them with all of the resources that they need to make their projects the best they can possibly be! Not only will these tablets help them with their research based projects, they will also be able to access math and reading resources for enrichment and support purposes.
