My Students

Each day is a new fun-filled day in our 3rd grade classroom. Not one day is the same as the last, just as not one child is the same as the next. I believe everyone has a different way of learning, and I love to provide my students with many different tools and resources so they can be successful.

Third grade students are eager to learn new things.

Each student has a learning style that I strive to incorporate in a fun, creative way. Our public school serves a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds. We have a large population of military families and have many parents currently deployed. We are one of the best schools in our district and continue to strive for excellence daily.

My Project

Each of my students use a chromebook daily in all subjects to help extend or reinforce a lesson. Sometimes the small touchpad makes it more difficult for them to navigate through the lessons. They waste lots of time hassling with the touchpad and this time could be used on learning if each of them had a mouse connected to their chromebook. Having a mouse, will help students be able to better highlight texts, use various websites with ease, and they will be able to be more confident in their Chromebook skills. We really enjoy the privilege of having a chromebook for each student to use at their desk!
