My Students

My students truly make my job a dream come true! You see, my students have such a desire to learn that teaching them puts a smile on my face each and every day.

My students are like little sponges, soaking up every ounce of learning that I can put before them.

They desire to be challenged and thrive on encouraging motivation. They love to work cooperatively with their peers, providing support and constant feedback to each other throughout their daily tasks. My students continually strive to surpass my expectations and that makes my heart smile!

My Project

At the present time, I have 18 students and only 3 dependable computers in my classroom. With my current student to computer ratio, it makes it extremely difficult to incorporate technology into our daily lessons. This is why I am seeking help.

A classroom that integrates technology is one that will reach diverse learning styles, inspire student engagement, and help prepare students for their future.

My students desire and deserve to have that kind of classroom and three Chromebooks will take them beyond the walls of our classroom.

I strongly feel that my job as a teacher is to provide my students with the best educational experience possible. The minds of our future certainly deserve the BEST!
