My Students

My kindergarten students are full of energy, and they are eager to begin their first learning experiences in our structured leaning environment. Each student enters kindergarten at different levels of ability, but all student are inquisitive in their unique way and excited to learn.

My students come from culturally diverse backgrounds which can be contributed to a blend of living in a rural community as well as living just outside a large military base.

The vast demographic range of my students keeps things exciting and challenging. I strive to meet the individual needs of all students.

My Project

Learning is no longer restricted within the walls of a classroom. Digital learning is learning facilitated by technology that gives students some element of control over time, place, path and/or pace. Interactive and adaptive software and digital programs allows students to learn in their own style, making learning personal and engaging.

With digital learning, teachers will be able to provide the personalized guidance and assistance to ensure all students learn and stay on track.

My students will use these headphones daily to complete online supplementary programs in both English Language Arts and Math. These headphones will allow my students to tap into this place of individualized learning in a private, less distracted way.
