My Students

Our school is gifted with a helpful community of both parents and students. With a variety of resources, time, and income levels, I have seen families help out in ways that will warm your heart. Our school community really steps up for one another, and that is the unique part about US. From simple help with drop offs and pick ups, to making sure that every child has a snack. We are the true definition of community.

Our classroom is no different.

We will encourage one another, aid one another, inspire one another, and be a community who respects, nurtures, and learns from one another. I encourage all students to learn based on what their individual needs are. Each day I strive to create a community where students feel safe to learn and grow. We start and end our days with "community circle" which allows students to share who they are, and their feelings in a safe place. My students welcome the challenges of our curriculum and are encouraged to give their personal best each day.

My Project

No one learns in the same way or at the same pace, but technology can level-set the classroom.

For example, technology can provide accommodations for struggling students, and virtual lesson plans provide individualized instruction for all.

Students can learn at their own speed, reviewing difficult concepts or skipping ahead as needed. Teaching students how to use technology to learn, research, collaborate, and solve problems from an early age will better prepare them for their careers. It can also help reduce the fear of new technology in the future by familiarizing them with

Here are some of the programs we plan to use: "Raz Kids: is an online guided reading program with interactive ebooks, downloadable books, and reading quizzes. "Prodigy Math" has great features like full alignment with key curricula, automatic assessment in-game for all students to place them in the correct grade, 24/7 Real-time reporting, and embedded in-game formative, diagnostic, and summative assessments. "Newsela" is a where students can read articles about real world things at their reading level. "Seesaw" allows students to write and draw online, interact with their classmates digitally (where I must approve comments), and allows parents to see what students are doing in class. Last but certainly not least, students will be able to type their own writing.
