My Students

I teach in an urban area school in Knoxville, TN . Many of my students confront all of the challenges typically associated with a low income urban setting. Despite the challenges heartaches and disappointments many of them have had to endure in their young lives, they treat each day as a blank slate and come to class excited to get to do over and make it better than before.

My students come each day full of questions eager to learn, I do all I can to keep them excited about the world around them.

Inspiring their passion for learning and motivating them attain their goals are the reasons I asking for your help.

My Project

It is increasingly difficult to keep students engaged in their education. Turning lessons in to games or competitions is a great way to keep them interested. It promotes participation among groups of students who are reluctant to do so otherwise. I currently use a system of students raising their hands to compete during classroom reviews or mini competitions. Conducting the class with this method is difficult and can encourage arguing among students. I have seen classrooms that use the EGGspert classroom buzzer sets and they make a world of difference.

The Eggspert system encourages fast thinking and important social skills, promotes friendly classroom competition, and develops important motor skills for quick answers.

The wireless controller makes it easy for the teacher to roam the classroom to promote participation and monitor behaviors. The dry erase boards will be used for student answers during review and lessons, they will also be used for student questions about the lessons. Some of my students do now want to ask questions with the attention of the class on them. these boards will allow them to engage with out the fear of social pressures.
