My Students

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

My students are an inquisitive, self-motivated, inspiring, active, and amazing bunch of students.

They inspire me to be the best teacher that I can for them, because of their love and passion for learning. They love to read, sing, be creative, explore, and participate in activities that keep them fit. They love to learn new things and challenge themselves to be the best they can be.

My Project

My students need materials such as Chromebooks in order to become digital citizens. The materials I am requesting would help my class to become a digital classroom with my students learning digital citizenship. In a digital classroom, students will have the opportunity to challenge themselves and be creative within a safe and responsible space. Students will also learn the importance of internet safety and the havoc cyberbullying has on others.

The purpose of a digital classroom is to allow students to learn the importance of using technology in a safe and responsible way.

The Chromebooks will be used to allow students to access websites such as Code.org, ALEKS, and Everfi. They will also use the Chromebooks to access Google Classroom to turn in assignments, thus using less paper and creating less waste. Students will also be able to use the Chromebooks to cast assignments, using a TV and Chromecast in our classroom, to share with their peers for feedback and to work collaboratively.

I believe that by creating a digital classroom, it will enable my students to be productive digital citizens.
