My Students

I have a classroom of 19 diverse learners who show a great enthusiasm for learning. My students are bright, creative, and very dedicated to learning. Everyday they demonstrate our classroom core values: Respect, Integrity, Self-Discipline, and Excellence.

Their ability to collaborate, share, complete tasks, and help one another makes me extremely proud of them.

We are in a mostly low-income/high-poverty school district, with many of my students facing several challenges both in and out of the classroom. We strive to make school an enjoyable experience where all students feel safe and engaged. As their teacher, I aim to foster their curiosity and love of learning.

My Project

Children naturally speak at lower volumes than adults, and when students ask questions and share ideas, it becomes that much harder for anyone to hear. I have 19 diverse learners in my classroom and we work in collaborative groups on a daily basis. We also build community during restorative circle, participate in whole-group discussions, and use Habits of Discussion to share our thinking during Math. Throughout the day we are constantly sharing valuable feedback.

Help us manage classroom discussions, increase learning and ensure every student is heard with the use of a Qball.

The air of confidence that the Qball would bring to students would be so magical to the learning process! Some of my students are confident speakers and can't wait for the opportunity to speak up in the classroom. I also have students that are confident but very soft spoken. The use of a Qball microphone in our classroom is the perfect solution to help students share their thoughts in a fun and engaging way.
