Our school is bursting with student growth and is not slowing down any time soon! I teach fourth grade math and science and work with students from various socioeconomic backgrounds, races, and cultures. I work with special education students, English language learners, dyslexic students, and much more.
In the fall of 2017, our school district was directly impacted by the devastating flooding of Hurricane Harvey.
Despite the fact that our school year did not start out as we had all envisioned, our students have remained determined in their learning.
Fourth grade is an exhilarating year for students. Students go through various challenges, both academically, and socially. Fourth graders are learning how to be strong, independent learners who can be effective problem solvers.
In today's world, technology is an essential part of our classrooms. Every week in our classroom students complete math rotations that include the use of technology. In these rotations students might be practicing their math facts, working to fill the gaps in their learning, or even creating projects to display their learning and share it.
With the abundance of growth happening at our campus, the technology to student ratio is decreasing.
This is a challenge for our classroom since we use technology every day.
By donating to our project, students will have more opportunities to use technology in a variety of ways. Students may be using technology to work on various programs that offer differentiated instruction for each student . Or, students may be using an educational application to present their learning in a way that goes beyond the traditional pencil and paper.
I am eager to bring more opportunities for learning to my students! Having more technology in our classroom will open up a new realm of possibilities for student learning.
