My Students

At the end of the school year, my goal is to have created a class of lifetime-learners that will be able to go on and make their future goals a reality.

I teach a group of diverse, hard-working third graders that love coming to school every day.

Although I have many different levels of learners in my classroom, I hold every single one of them to high standards. My goal is to give them everything I can to improve the quality of education I am providing.

My Project

Picture this: I have just complimented a student for the awesome story they have just written. Instead of ending there, I take the piece of writing and place it under the document camera. Now, all students can actually SEE this exemplar work! So motivating! Having a document camera in our classroom for daily lessons will take everything small and turn it big! I will be able to solve math problems on the same paper students are looking at. I will be able showcase student's work, where the class will have the opportunity to see their work projected in real-time. The students will be able to see a projected version the book I am reading aloud. The opportunities are endless and I cannot wait to introduce this piece of technology to my students!

Having a document camera will make a tremendous difference in my classroom.

Although it sounds simple, projecting different items for all of my students to see, will make learning easier and more fun!!
