My Students

What makes my classroom special? Maybe it's the fact that my students come from approximately 15 different countries around the world, all going for the "American Dream". The American Dream is different for a lot of people in 2019. Many of my students will be the first in their family to graduate from high school, or most will be the first to go to college.

I teach in a Title I school district and in one of the largest high schools in my state, but that doesn't stop our students from achieving greatness!

They are the hardest working group of young people I have had in my 10 years of teaching so far, and they understand that the importance of doing the right things and what getting a formal education would mean for their families.

They have exceeded my expectations so far this semester with their talent, organization, and gritty attitudes towards education. The American dream isn't just coming to work anymore, it is about doing the unexpected and creating things that we could only see in our minds. It is about bringing those ideas to life, and getting the word out there faster than ever!

My Project

I am hoping to use this Chromebook to help my ELL students for pictures, Google translator, and helping with their writing skills. Most of the students in my classes speak a dialect of Spanish, but not true Spanish language.

They come from many different countries in Central America, so even they can have a hard time understanding one another because they come from different countries.

This computer will help them better understand and communicate with me, understand the vocabulary, and pick up the language faster by always having this with them. Google has so many amazing resources for teachers like myself to use that will help their students grow. We can also use this computer to research biomes and pollution for their projects in my class.
