My Students

The students in my history classes are some of the most caring, intellectual, and inquisitive people I know. They surprise me daily with their interest in learning about the world around them. These students inspire me to be a better teacher and to create more challenging and relevant lessons and assignments.

Simply put - my students are the BEST!

I am excited for this year, and I am excited to see how these students are going to use technology in new ways in order to connect the past to the present. I know they are going to create great projects while learning and having fun in the process.

My Project

Integrating technology is essential in the 21st century classroom. In order to keep my students well prepared for high school and beyond, I feel it is of the utmost importance to incorporate technology in the social studies curriculum.

History is endlessly fascinating and dynamic, students' learning should be too!

These Chromebooks will be used to enhance student learning in a variety of ways. For instance, students will be able to access primary and secondary sources from the internet, work collaboratively with others, and create individual projects using various websites and applications.

Your donation to this project will help develop critical thinking, spatial awareness, and experience using the computer while enhancing student learning. In addition, the use of technology will allow students to work with media they wouldn’t otherwise have access to in the classroom.
