I teach 20 bright, fun and engaged second graders in a small, urban school located in one of the most culturally diverse and lively neighborhoods.
My class of second graders can be described with one word - inspiring.
Some face challenges in their home life. Some are diagnosed with learning disabilities. Some are still trying to figure out who they are and where they fit in among their peers. Regardless of their challenges and obstacles, my students enter the classroom willing, excited and ready to learn.
Teaching in a full inclusion classroom, I work to provide all of my students the support and encouragement they need to feel and be successful. I strive to provide each child with rich and challenging learning experiences. My hope is that they leave school each day happy that they came and eager to come back the next day.
Last year our class received three Chromebooks and I saw firsthand how important and necessary it was to have a set of computers living in our classroom. Students need regular access to technology in order to become proficient at navigating all that the web offers, while learning internet safety!
By adding two Chromebooks to our classroom, I will have enough computers to run a technology station where students will have the opportunity to build on their skills across all content areas.
We will also be utilizing web-based assessment programs that will help monitor, measure growth and identify target areas for differentiated instruction.
Technology can have a huge impact on learning and providing access is the first step. Please support my classroom and our goal of reaching our fullest potential.
