My Students

Our school population (1650 students in a school built for 1500) is made up of children from extremes in the social economic area. We have children from well-to-do families to unemployed migrant worker children. My students really get excited about STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education when it is utilized in my technology lessons. I teach at a school in Utah that is now 16 years old. The state of Utah is on the lowest end of the per pupil spending list in the United States. This does not allow for a lot of hands-on projects. The school as a whole is trying to be the school of the 21st century using mostly digital resources.

Since our school opened we have achieved many things including the title of "Schools To Watch." Our school is now into two years of a standards-based mastery grading system.

As a supportive teacher at the school, I make sure that I provide remediation to all of my students who have trouble achieving the “Mastery” scores. This has led to higher than the district and state of Utah averages in the Common Core exams.

My Project

I teach seventh grade students about Digital Literacy. The digital world is part of everyone's future! Students need to know how to safely use their technology in today's complicated world.

I just need a few items to bring my old lab up to date - an Apple TV.

Then I could connect wirelessly to my projector allowing me to walk around the room with my tablet assisting students.

I also have Spanish students that would benefit from learning on a Spanish keyboard. I need some replace keyboards and mice to have a fully functional lab.

Last, I am asking for a few wrist pads to help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.
