My Students

Teaching just gets better and better each year! I teach fifth grade science and my students are engaged! They love science and are chomping at the bit to see what they are going to learn next. This energy compels me to constantly evaluate what can be done better in my classroom. I am looking for any new way to present science to draw in each and every student I see.

Students around the school are bubbling with excitement to get to fifth grade and experience the rich world of science in my classroom!

From the first day, we are seeking to gain an understanding of the world around us, all through the lens of science. Questions abound, and we help any way we can to answer them and continually pique their interest.

Our school is in a rural area of Mississippi, with many students lacking real-world experiences and exposure to technology that are necessary in today's tech-driven world. This does not hinder our students from being curious about the world outside of their small communities. I have many bright students with even brighter futures!

My Project

Technology is a gift educators get to use in the classroom. I try to find creative ways to incorporate technology into my classroom, but inevitably I always return to figuring out the basics. How do I teach students to take care of this technology? The balance can be difficult, but it is an important lesson to learn. Headphones are a necessity and also an issue.

Our focus needs to be on what we are learning and off the equipment we are using.

It just needs to work.

These headphones are a key to that. My students will often lose time at the beginning of an assignment or lesson to make sure they get a decent pair of headphones (of which there aren't many). With this project, I will make sure as many of my students will be prepared to listen to everything they need.
