My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds of varying socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. About one-fourth of my students are first generation immigrants or second language learners. Watching my students work together to analyze and solve problems is a joy for me. Learning through active experience and collaboration is impactful.

My students love to learn and absorb knowledge.

They yearn for chances to listen and collaborate, share ideas, and demonstrate their thinking. Our classroom looks very different than it did a month ago, but I'd like to be able to provide my students with the most "normal" continued learning experience to meet their various needs.

My Project

Learning through images is a vital part of how we learn. In the traditional classroom, I have enjoyed combining visual representations with activities in order to strengthen my students' learning as well as provide scaffolding not only for my English language learners but all students. I create drawings that depict the information in our lessons with text and labels for students to record what they have learned.

Distance Learning has changed the way I am able to teach and provide for my students.

With an iPad and an Apple Pencil I will be able to create the same notes, but they will be interactive online. With the iPad and Apple Pencil, I can use it during virtual lessons and videos as a way to share pictures and notes to enhance the lessons the way I used to in the classroom. These tools will also allow me to share it as a whiteboard for students to comment and share ideas. I would love to be able to give them something familiar from our classroom during these difficult times.
