My Students

"Be the change you want to see in the world," Mahatma Gandhi said, and my students will apply this quote by realizing the impact they make everyday when ensuring the Earth's future and their learning, by using 21st century technology instead of the 20th century.

My 2nd grade students are eager to use new technology in their classroom every day.

They look forward to the opportunity to take their learning to the next level as they prepare themselves for the future. My students are surrounded by a diverse group of fellow learners in a Title I school that are craving an outlet to express their unique talents and the chance to develop a passion for learning and saving their planet.

My Project

The iPad mini, with protective case, will allow students to research and create presentations about Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling. Throughout the entire project, students will blog their observations in a personal narrative piece. In addition, students will convey what the 3Rs mean to them, and how/why they are important to implement in school and at home. The documentary will also demonstrate the impact they have made on the community, during each phase of the project. Students will research different types of plants that grow in our climate and how they benefit the community to plant in the garden we will be building. They will create a persuasive presentation convincing their classmates that their plant is the best choice. Students will conduct a survey and graph the results to determine which plants will be planted. Also, students will use the iPad mini to reinforce any skill they are struggling with by engaging in fun activities to learn difficult concepts in a fun way.

This project will change the future of the community by giving students an opportunity to collaborate with peers, while bettering their community.

Students will learn lifelong skills, including project design, management, and develop a sense of personal agency from identifying and solving problems. As a result, students will develop an interest in a profession, not typically exposed to them, and this cultivate a college-bound generation.
