My Students

Our population is very diverse. We have many nationalities, cultures, and abilities. Our children come to school eager to learn and with a thirst for knowledge in spite of their socioeconomic hardships. Our parents do all they can to provide our children with the supplies necessary to succeed. We have an in-depth special education program, a gifted and talented program, and a dual-language program. My computer lab is used by students in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.

An elementary school classroom is like no other place in the world.

It is a home for little ones for six hours a day. Teachers not only provide an education in math, reading, and other school subjects, they provide stability, love, acceptance and support for amazing little people. Teachers educate the whole child. Personally, I strive to teach values, love, and acceptance in my room as well.

My Project

A Cricut Explore Air 2 will allow my students to learn new software and create anything they can imagine! In small groups during SEM, or after school, my students will design and create t-shirts, posters, vinyl decals to label and decorate everything they can think of. A Cricut Explore will provide them the proper tools to put their creativity into action.

My students love to create and explore new technologies.

This machine will give us an avenue to use our imaginations and create personalized items for our school community. I am excited to share this new technology with my students and can't wait for them to create with a Cricut!
