My Students

My scholars strive each day energetically and determined to receive an education. Our school is a Title I funded program and my scholars embody diverse backgrounds. They work hard each day to better themselves academically while making promises to be the first to enter college.

My scholars are kids who receive free lunch, uniforms, and supplies while striving to obtain the American dream.

Many of our families function in harsh survival conditions daily and regularly go without the bare necessities. Unfortunately, technology, books, and museum visits are at the bottom of their priority list. Technology is desperately needed to assist with a reading program called Tutor Mate and a math program called Imagine Math.

My Project

The use of a computer is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in reading and math. Therefore, a computer during rotation time is vitally important in class. Computer time allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a research math or reading program in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are working on Imagine Math and Imagine Reading. Making sure students have easy access is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given extra computer learning time. They always make good choices about what subject is needed to practice on. Furthermore, they are more engaged and get more work completed than when they are rotating to computer time. My goal is to furnish each child with their very own computer tablet one day!
