My Students

I teach 4th grade students at our elementary school, a rural school on the outskirts of a small town. We are comprised of many low economic status families, ranking us a Title 1 school. In my classroom, I teach gifted and talented, ESL, general and special education students. My goal is to be able to accommodate each of these learners and provide them with the best education I can. Just last year, our school was devastated by Hurricane Harvey. My classroom has since been rebuilt, but we are still working toward replacing lost resources.

My Project

The Mimio Teach Interactive Whiteboard will allow my class to keep pace with 21st Century learning, allowing my students to interact with the content in a tech-based and hands-on format. My ordinary whiteboard will be transformed to an interactive board, as students will be able to become physically engaged in their learning, as well as provide new teaching opportunities. This technology gives both the teacher and the students the opportunity to teach, explain, interact, learn, and model in many forms throughout the classroom. Each learning style is able to be addressed with this technology in an engaging and thrilling way to peak student interest.
