My students are very special to me because they "get it!" They “get it” because despite being comprised of numerous surrounding areas, we all come together as one. Students share their experiences during our Morning Meetings and I am always fascinated by how well they can articulate their adventures.
We strive to help our students become leaders in the schoolhouse so that they can grow up and be our future leaders of tomorrow.
In only our third year of existence, our school hasn't established those awesome partnerships with corporations and businesses like many veteran schools have. Nonetheless, it is our goal to prepare our students for college and career readiness through hard work and dedication.
As we grow closer to becoming a 2 to 1 classroom (that means that every 2 students will share 1 piece of technology) I envision my students becoming investors and explorers of learning instead of solely dependent on the teacher for answers and information. I envision them being able to read a text and find information from the text to help them correctly answer critical thinking types of questions. I envision my students using technology on a daily basis both individually and collectively to respond to performance based tasks that will require them to apply what is being taught in the class to real world scenarios. Students will also be given the opportunity to play web based games that will be both engaging and educational at the same time. These web based games will provide them with opportunities to learn in the classroom that they might not get when they are away from school.
These resources will help change students' lives by providing a road map to a pathway of learning that only experience can teach.
These resources will also give students the confidence that is needed to compete in a highly competitive market known as "Technology!" By becoming more familiar with using technology, students will be able to embrace the world of being abstract with concrete evidence.
