My Students

When you walk into my 6th grade classroom, you would never imagine that you are in rural southeast Iowa. My classroom is filled with eleven and twelve year olds who crave knowledge in the 21st century. The cultural diversity is unusual for an Iowa rural school since many of my students are of Hispanic ethnicity while others are from the country of Burma and from our small town of 1800 people.

My classroom culture is a safe and positive place for students to learn, taking them away from the worries of today's world.

The learnings of growth mindset are very evident with all the students as they show their knowledge through projects. They are relaxed, focused and eagerly waiting on the next bout of wisdom to come their way. It is a student-centered classroom, with each student leading his or her individual way into gaining more knowledge. I am very focused, taking students from where they are in order to reach each students' highest potential.

My Project

With only 6 IPads between 2 classrooms of 6th grade students, I want to give my students the opportunity to learn at their fullest potential when using technology. Giving students access to computers will allow them to prepare for their future careers while allowing them to connect with their individual learning style. Integrating technology into the daily curriculum will encourage students to stay engaged and allow them to take control of their own learning. Having computers and a printer within their reach will show the students that information is a click away and will provide them with the best opportunities to further their learning.
