My Students

My classroom is composed of 21 to 30 multicultural learners a year. Our school has a high mobility rate so in a typical year I have between 21 and 35 students. While many of my students have been newcomers from refugee camps and speak no English, are enrolled as an English Language Learner, are part of the special education program, and nearly all of my students have experienced or are currently experiencing trauma in their lives, all of my learners love feeling safe and loved at school. I believe in my students and I know they are a gift to this world.

Our school has over 30 languages spoken and a wide variety of social and academic needs.

A full 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch and are able to take backpacks full of food on Fridays and during farmer's market weeks. We have a SUN (schools uniting neighborhoods) program that allows students to receive further education and dinner instead of being home alone. The teachers at my school are dedicated to their students.

My Project

As a teacher for the past ten years, technology has always been a tool to engage, challenge and expand children's thinking.

These 4 Chromebooks will be used in conjuncture with Google Classroom (used for every subject) and teaching technology skills to prepare my 3rd graders for the state test in Spring.

Chromebooks are also a wonderful tool to expand a child's learning through hands-on, high-interest certified enrichment for 3rd graders. In my classroom, I utilize the Workshop model which means students are at stations based on their academic need. I am then able to meet with a group of 6 students for a rotation (15 minutes) during reading, writing, math and STEM small group times. Having an extension group with 4 Chromebooks would allow a group of students to receive at-level, extension or high-level instruction and prompt feedback and assignments from me

Some of the programs student's would be able to engage in independently are Google Classroom, high-interest reading articles and comprehension questions, engaging math games and common core standards through IXL with real-time data sent to me as students work. Not only that, students will be able to type their assignments, chart data while creating tables/graphs, create powerpoint/google slide presentations on a research topic, write reflections and respond to other classroom peers' assignments, learn how to code (STEM), create slide shows of their learning to share with peers, take pictures of their learning, utilize programs for ELL and SPED needs all while improving their technology understandings.

I hope you'll join me in educating and preparing my 3rd graders for the real world and technology is the best place to begin!
