My Students

I was recently told after a full observation by my schools Assistant Principal that when you walk into my classroom, you can feel the warmth and compassion that my students have for one another. However, it was not always like this. My students come from a variety of different backgrounds, living situations, and cultures. Throughout the school year, I have noticed wonderful changes in my students! They use respectful language when communicating with their peers, their attitude toward learning is more positive, and their desire to improve has increased!

Despite many challenges they face in life, my students come to school everyday ready to learn.

Seeing students finally grasp a difficult math concept, conquer a writing piece, or move up a reading level is why I became a teacher. There is nothing better than that "Ah-ha!" moment.

My Project

By adding up to date technology in my classroom students will be able to quickly log on to do research for science and social studies projects. My students will also be able to publish their writing pieces like true authors. By adding these 5 Chromebooks to my classroom I will be able to assign students to work on leveled assignments on self paced computer programs such as Study Island, Moby Max and Lexia to improve their reading and math abilities.

With the current technology available, students are spending 10-15 minutes waiting for the computer to log on.

After this time has passed, many students are only getting a short amount of time before their rotation time is over. Since my goal is to replace the desk top computers with these Chromebooks, that will also free up TONS of space in my classroom. My plan is to then use the tables where the current computers are as a STEM station.
