My Students

My fourth graders are in for a year full of exploration, higher order critical thinking, creativity, PBL adventures, STEM challenges, voice and choice, technology integration and collaboration. As a GATE classroom teacher, I am continuously inspiring my scholars to try new things, step outside of their comfort zone while maintaining a growth mindset, being able to give one another positive-constructive feedback and to not be afraid to fail after the first attempt.

The majority of my students face various barriers outside of the classroom that stand between them and their path to a successful future.

For example, they come from low income households, tough neighborhoods, language barriers, and are aided at school through the free or reduced lunch program. I am in awe of how my students come to school each day highly motivated and eager to learn new things. I dream of providing them with the tools, options and opportunities to grow in a 21st century learning environment!

My Project

Please help me bring in a love of theatre and production through use of this amazing Greenscreen! It will allow us to extend our learning through reenacting important novel events previously studied as well as events throughout history. We are in a world of constant change and technology is the wave of the future. I dream of providing my students the tools they need to become well rounded and knowledgable scholars.

By having a variety of technology tools like these Ozobots and Spheres, it will allow my students the ability to code these sophisticated technology sources and enhance their critical thinking skills!

I am ALWAYS searching for ways to inspire my students to succeed and bring about their love of learning. With your help, I can make that possible with these wonderful technology resources!
