My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school where over 90% of our students receive free or reduced cost school lunches, my students come from various backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and learning styles. While there are many differences within my classroom, they all have the same goal and that goal is to learn and have fun doing it. My job as their teacher is to do just that by providing them with a fun, safe, learning environment where they can all grow in their education.

"I never teach my pupils, I only provide the conditions in which they can learn".

-Albert Einstein

My Project

My students love to read. They also love to play games while learning. Our classroom already has VersaTiles Math for Second grade and enjoy doing each challenge. By adding VersaTiles Literacy for Second grade to our classroom collection they will enjoy the same while learning more about literacy.

"Children want to the same things we want; To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted." Dr Seuss

VersaTiles give my students the ability to have screen free and an engaging alternative way to help in our skills practice. My students will be able to self check their answers each time and gain self confidence as they go along.
