My Students

August started a new school year with a new bunch of smiling faces. I teach kindergarten at a Title I school in Robeson County. My classroom is made up of a diverse group of Kindergarteners. They come from different backgrounds with a wide range of interests, but very few life experiences. Although the majority of my students are from families of low socioeconomic backgrounds, they are always happy to be at school and eager to learn.

When Hurricane Florence hit our area, our students lost a month of instructional time.

When they returned, school was a safe haven for them and they were overjoyed to be back. It was the calm after the storm.

As their educator, I want to make sure they have the necessary materials to help them succeed! Their perseverance motivates me to do everything I can to give them a brighter future!

My Project

The 21st century learner thrives on technology and with the ever changing world we live in, we must expose even our youngest learners to different forms of technology. Most young children are tech-savvy and know how to operate tablets, but not many know how to operate Chromebooks or desktops computers. Knowing how to do such activates learning.

One study, from a Texas kindergarten classroom using Chromebooks, yielded surprising results in student academic achievement.

Chromebooks make it easier to differentiate learning.

This school year, our district purchased the i-Ready instructional program. i-Ready is an interactive online learning program that was designed to assess students and provide them with an individualized instructional learning environment based on their strengths and weaknesses. i-Ready is an excellent program and my children really enjoy it.

However, due to the lack of desktops and laptops, they don't get to use such programs as much as we would like. The computers in my room no longer work and we had to dispose of them, which means we must rely on the computers in other classrooms to access the program.

Having two chromebooks in my classroom will not only allow my students to access their instructional programs, but will also introduce them to new forms of technology, build collaboration, and allow for instructional differentiation.
