My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences! Technology is becoming so prominent in this day and age, and having access to computers in the classroom is vital to student success!

Many of my students are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as typical. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I try my best to focus on their potential and growth while they are here with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By creating a positive and flexible learning environment, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to succeed!

My Project

Through the use of hands-on centers, games, and manipulatives, I cannot wait to see my students excited and eager to learn! They thrive through exploration and have shown a particular interest in "center" time in my classroom! I have done my best to create engaging centers; however, there are only so many activities a teacher can laminate before she loses it!

I am hopeful that these amazing resources will not only allow my students to learn, but build social skills as well!

Being able to play games and participate in centers with classmates will create collaborative conversations and learning moments beyond plain old paper and pencil!
