My Students

Our school is located in a large urban city. Our teachers and staff provide a safe and fun learning environment. There are many experiences for all to have, but many students stay within our area. Most parents are immigrants. They are hardworking, caring, and involved. Our school is Title I, forty percent English Learners, and all kids receive free lunch.

My students are creative and come to school every day ready to learn.

We are a bilingual English/Spanish class. Kids love readers and writers workshop as well as anything to do with math and science. We work on projects through the year that incorporate classroom presentations and parent participation.

My Project

The Qball is a progressive, action-oriented learning tool that engages and encourages participation of all students. This technology integrates the Four Cs of Education (Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity). When using this innovative device students learn skills needed in the 21st Century like clear and articulate communication while working with a team, as an essential skill for our future leaders.

Many of my students are shy and hesitate to participate orally in class.

QBall is a fun interactive way to give my students voice. Some students are also English learners that will benefit from hearing others speak and hearing themselves as well.

With a Qball students will engage in class discussion about books, math, social studies. They will project their voice and explain their thinking.
