My Students

"We are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that haven’t been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet"- Richard Riley.

I have two groups of twenty 4th grade students for math and science.

Each child comes from a unique background/home life, yet for seven hours each day we are a family. These students are very respectful to me along with their peers. They are fearless with technology, and, often times, leading the charge when it comes to new advances and incorporating these in the classroom.

I would like to create a mindset in these students that regardless of where or what they come from the sky truly is the limit.

My Project

The technology in our world is growing and changing every day. I would like to provide my students with readily available technology that will teach them skills that they will use on a daily basis. I'm requesting two Dell Chromebooks which will be used for a variety of learning activities and challenges.

In our class, we will be using Google Classroom where they will be given assignments, quizzes, and forms to fill out.

By having these Chromebooks for everyone to use, students will each have access to this online information.

During class, we will also be doing science research projects. Students will be able to use their Chromebooks to help them find and document information on their project. Chromebooks will help me equip my students with the knowledge that they will need to succeed now and in the future.

I believe these Chromebooks will be that extra key to unlocking our tiny class room to the rest of what the world has to teach us.
