My Students

We are one big, happy family. Our Title I school is home to a large population (92%) of English language learners. My students face many challenges while living in a new country and attempting to learn a new language.

My three classes are filled with 75 eager students who love working together to complete various tasks.

My goal is to make their transition as smooth as possible in hopes of preparing them for great achievement. They are capable of greatness and will achieve.

My Project

My students are excited about this school year, they have become extraordinary authors and creative illustrators. After discussing digital storytelling they are eager to create podcasts to help students in lower grades learn skills needed to be successful as they move up the ladder to 6th grade. To assist ELL (English Language Learners) learn English my students came up with the wonderful idea of creating videos of each other reading books that they wrote to encourage the viewers to read along with them. Younger students would also benefit from digital storytelling by reading along and/or being special guests during the productions.

Their studio would include a camcorder, iPad, interactive whiteboard system, microphones, earphones, and a mix pad to assist with their productions.

My classes will take the art of storytelling to the next level. This project will allow my students to become tech-savvy learners who use digital media to learn and grow as well as teach others.
