My Students

I am an instructional coach and working with all students and teachers as an instructional coach is a dream job! My daily duties include co-teaching, assisting teachers and meeting the needs of both teachers and students. Our teachers are leaders and they eagerly want to explore with ways to advance their teaching practice. Our students are hard workers, deep thinkers, eager helpers and servant leaders. Our student population is very diverse. We have an equal mix of high income and low income students with a wide range of abilities as well. Our school includes students from military families, gifted students, special education students, students with 504 plans and students from a tough home life. Despite their differences, our students embrace one another and work together harmoniously daily. Their compassion and character are to be admired.

My students are eager to learn and love engaging in new and innovative lessons.

My Project

Middle school students crave innovation and all things STEM related. How awesome would it be if they were given the tools to create their own movies and videos? These materials will help incorporate technology and engineering into the everyday classroom. This project will add a new and innovative way for my students and other teachers to record their learning and collaborate on projects across the curriculum. It will bring life to morning announcements, class discussion and student reports. This equipment will be used by the entire school and will turn a small corner of our library into whatever the students imagine it can be. A green screen cloth will allow students to project pictures or video behind themselves or whatever they are videoing. The Apple iPad will insure that all students can save their work.

The possibilities for using this station will be limited only by my students' imaginations.

My own imagination is just going wild with possibilities for using this station, especially since the FlipGrid app (a video discussion platform) became free for all educators. Using this app will allow students to share their thoughts on an endless list of topics as well as listening to and considering the thoughts of others. That is just the beginning. Please help me bring this technology into my school for the teachers and students.
