My Students

I teach a fun-loving, hardworking group of energetic third graders. They range in achievement levels and bring a diverse set of skills to the table.

As their teacher, I am constantly looking for ways to engage all of my students while meeting their various learning needs.

Student participation is a key element to making sure that students are invested in their learning.

We are a California Distinguished School and our district is Common Core ready. We are in need, however, of updated school supplies to support and educate the 21st-century student.

My Project

We have recently started using our iPads and Chromebooks as a tool to create digital portfolios. Some of our digital experimentation has led students to record themselves reading or sharing about various subject matter. We have found, however, that it is often hard to hear the recorded voices due to background noise. The VTech retro phones can be plugged into the iPads or Chromebooks and serve as a microphone for students. Having these phones/microphones will allow for clearer sound when playing back the recording. In addition, it will allow students to playback their recording once it has been completed and hear it through the phone. This dual purpose (listening and speaking) tool will take our skills to the next level!
