Our school is located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. My students are very eagerand active learners with a love that has been instilled in them by parents and previous teachers.They walk into my classroom each day ready to embrace whatever challenge I have set for them. My students are amazing! They push themselves to do their best and this also pushes me to be the best teacher for them.
Although funds and resources are very limited in our rural school, love, engagement, and creativity are not.
We have a very high low-socioeconomic status. We are a Title I school where 100% of our students receive a grant for free breakfast and lunch.
My students need technology in our classroom. To instill a love of learning, I would like for them to have availability to the internet so they may access books, reading and math games, and science and social studies research.
As a new teacher entering a classroom that lacks any technology for my students, I want to add unique and creative lessons to engage my students throughout the school day in various subjects.
To be successful, I want my students to be engaged, focused, and thinkinking critically in order to help them thrive. Technology reaches students with different learning styles. We will be using the Chromebooks in our classroom to meet the needs of all of my students. We will accomplish this by accessing online games, reading materials, and in depth simulations to further our understanding of classroom topics being taught.
