My Students

Our elementary school is a public, Title I school. Six hundred thirty-eight students attend our school and identify primarily as White, non-Hispanic; Black, non-Hispanic; and Asian/Pacific Islander. Fifty-four percent of the 638 students here are paying reduced lunch prices. The student to teacher ratio is 19:1. The 638 students have varying needs and are a diverse group of learners. My students benefit from the use of technology and the differentiated learning styles offered.

"We believe that all children should have an equal opportunity to experience the joy of learning and to achieve their fullest potential" is the vision statement at our school.

The dedicated staff of our school, together with a supportive community, is committed to providing an innovative, standards-based curriculum that promotes social and academic growth designed to prepare students to be responsible, contributing citizens of the 21st century.

We are proud of our various awards and recognition, which include National Blue Ribbon, Red Carpet Schools, Palmetto Gold, Reading Renaissance and Honor Roll School, to name a few. To continue this growth and history of excellence we strive to find and implement the latest technology in our classroom setting.

My Project

One simple way to help my students is to provide headphones for each of them to use with our classroom computers and iPads. Students will use the headphones to enhance their learning experience and be able to listen to videos, complete interactive activities on their individual Chromebooks, iPads, and assisting them with Google Classroom.

With these supplies, my students will have the materials they need for using computers and iPads which are a necessity for Google Classroom..

The headphones are necessary for interactive games and activities within Google Classroom. It is imperative that education meet students where they are and in the 21st century, online, and interactive instruction is the way to go!
