My Students

"Until we're educating every kid in a fantastic way, until every inner city is cleaned up, there is no shortage of things to do." - Bill Gates Let's get the younger generations ready to take care now of their future.

Fifth graders are not afraid of taking chances or trying new things.

"We are a family" is our classroom number one rule and we live by it every day. My students quickly learn that I am a little loony and that I like to sing, dance, and climb tables and chairs. During the school year, my students are exposed to large doses of craziness and creativity to encourage their abstract thinking. I believe that standardized tests can sometimes weaken children's ability to transcend traditional ideas and common school practices. I also believe that students learn more by practicing concepts in many ways such as team activities, games, and using technology to adapt and incorporate life connections and effective ways of learning.

My Project

My students and I envision a classroom where every student is sitting at their desk actively engaged in the lesson. Our textbooks allow teachers to deliver the lessons digitally for students to learn at their own pace while we conference individually with each student and check for understanding. These new resources allow us to deliver an assignment simultaneously to every student just by the click of a button, where feedback on assignments can be done in an instant. Using these three Chromebooks, my students will be able to connect to reading, math, science, and social studies activities while I can monitor what they are learning and I can provide them with the necessary individual support.

Having these three Chromebook computers in one classroom can allow my students to start taking charge of their own learning.

These resources will be the beginning of my students' digital connection to textbooks, resources, and activities. Students using technology in a classroom can only make their experiences more engaging and will assist with mastery of concepts.
