My Students

My first graders live in a small community that values education and hard work. They are excited every day to come to school, and I enjoy seeing their faces light up when they grasp something for the first time, or learn something new! As a small, public, elementary school, we have a strong sense of community, but sometimes a smaller resource pool from which to get the supplies we need.

I believe in each of my students and want to foster his or her creativity and thirst for learning.

My students enjoy using technology, and sometimes I find that it helps them think outside the box. But they also enjoy creating physical works of learning and art, and I enjoy guiding them through this process.

My Project

My students enjoy developing their creativity in many different ways. Osmo kits for iPads will integrate with some existing technology we have to let kids explore and imagine at their own pace. They reinforce basic skills in a way that will give instant feedback to students. We will be able to preview and explore new topics in fresh ways. They can work on all sorts of projects to build a variety of skills.

My kids love expressing themselves, and I love giving them the tools to do so!

Blank workbooks will give them a place to write, draw, and build their stories. What is more exciting to a child than a space on which to express him/herself? I can't wait to see what they come up with!!!
