My Students

My students from Houston, Texas are part of a transformative learning environment built on character development. My goal, as their teacher, is to empower them to become confident, compassionate, and responsible leaders. In our class, everyday is a perfect day to have a good day. Every day is an opportunity to take ownership of our unique learning abilities.

My first graders are ready to explore, learn, take risks, and discover the leader within.

It is my job, as an educator, to facilitate the best possible environment for optimal learning with regard to each individual student's needs. I consider myself very lucky to have an incredible group of students, just waiting to reveal their learning potential!

My Project

We are a classroom that thrives on blended learning with useful technology to support differentiated instruction. Everyday students are utilizing iPads in some capacity. Students use the Dreambox program to work on individualized math lessons tailored to their level. Students also log into the SeeSaw portfolio to work on teacher created activities in all subject areas. Furthermore, students are using iPads for individualized and interactive reading on programs like EPIC Books and Tumblebooks.

These are just a few of the ways we use technology in the classroom to support learning.

However, due to inadequate school supplied headphones that are either outdated, broken, muted, and uncomfortable for student wear. Due to a lack of working headphones, students have a hard time drowning out the noise around them. To get the best use out of these wonderful technological tools that we use in the classroom, we are in need of good quality headphones for the students to use.
