My students are curious, hard-working, and dedicated members of their community. Many of them are current or former English Language Learners, whose families have come from all over the world.
My students understand that in order to be active members of their community, they need to be life-long learners.
It is not just about self-improvement, but also how they can better themselves to better the world around them. My hope is to always instill in them a constant desire to go beyond a headline or sound-byte, and gain an in-depth knowledge of the issues in their lives.
More and more, students are required to have access to online technology. As an urban, public school teacher, sometimes it is hard for all students to have access to this technology.
Having Chromebooks for the classroom would help give these students the access to the 21st century learning they need.
By creating a small classroom set, I will be able to create station work for my students. Through stations, the students will be able to go to a shared, online classroom, do collaborative projects online, research class topics, and learn the critical skills to becoming responsible digital citizens. This is the key to success for the modern-day student.
