My Students

I teach at a middle school with a diverse student population including 48% low-income and nearly 20% English Learners. Students in my class speak at least 9 different languages at home.

This project will enable my 7th and 8th students a means of accessing their classwork and communicate and work collaboratively with their peers; or work independently on their documents in an offline mode.

I was really impressed the initiative and the responsibility taken by the students in completing their work.

This project will enable me to add three additional Chromebooks to the class library of devices and provide resources to the students in my computer science class.

The plan for the upcoming school year to create student centered activities/projects including videos, demonstrations and modeling and making them available students prior to class as in a flipped classroom setting. The additional
