My Students

Educating is a lifelong learning process: new philosophies, new strategies, learning from the parents and community, learning from colleagues, and especially learning from the children.

Our elementary school is an urban school district in New Jersey's state capital with a total of 750 students.

57.1% African American, 41.0% Hispanic, 1.0% two or more races and 92.3% receive Free/Discounted Lunch. Martin Luther King Jr. School has an average proficiency test score in math and reading of 8% which is 83% lower than the NJ state average. Students are my first priority. Despite the fact that many children are living in poverty he/she can achieve academic success if their personal and a needs are met. Our district does not have the funding to supply teachers books or materials to incorporate in the classroom. Working in inner city schools, I find that students need to feel safe in an environment that is conducive to learning.

My Project

Bringing technology into the classroom is the best way to provide a 21st century learning milieu. The Chromebooks will be used on a daily basis for a variety of subjects and purposes. In the elementary grades 3-5 , students are expected to be able to type out their writing and be fluent in their keyboarding skills. Without enough computers in the classroom and a limited time in the school computer lab, it is difficult to make sure each student gets the time they need to spend gaining these skills. Not only will the Chromebooks be used for typing out their writing, research, creating presentations, and testing, but they will also be learning the foundation skills of navigating through the web.
