My Students

I am a Response to Intervention Resource teacher who serves a very diverse school. Though our school demographics are very diverse, our two largest subgroups are Hispanic and Asian and we serve a significant number of socioeconomically disadvantaged students. My students are inquisitive and enthusiastic learners always asking "Why?" I fundamentally believe that all students can learn at high levels and as a tenured educator, I understand that these 21st century learners students learn in many different ways and have very different needs. It is my goal to meet the needs of every single student I serve.

My Project

This amazing SMART TV will have a tremendous positive impact on my current and future student's learning. With a large, clear picture and built in sound, all of my students will able to view and hear presentations with ease. Our district provides many digital resources and tools that our current classroom technology does not support. Additionally, our technology carts are shared, which minimizes the number of opportunities my student have to access these educational applications. My students will be able to interact with their SMART TV daily which will not only engage them, but enhance their learning in every subject.
