My Students

My students are exceptional learners that are eager to explore new heights. Traditionally, these students are disregarded due to their learning abilities; however with the correct supports, they excel like their peers. I am proud to say that students that have entered my classroom were academically several grade levels below their peers. By the end of the year, most were performing at their current grade level. Others had grown at least one grade level which was appropriate growth for their cognitive abilities.

My Project

Most of my students have unfortunately limited experience outside of their local neighborhoods. And unfortunately, they are quite apprehensive to venture outside of their community. Through the utilization of virtual reality, I hope to introduce another world to the students. It is my desire that students will receive the life like experiences that motivates them to explore new topics and ideas that surpasses their current understanding or experience.

Each year students are asked, "What would you like to be when you grow up?" With these googles, I want to encourage my students to have life like experiences that will push their mindsets.
