My Students

This year will be an exciting and nervous time for students returning to school. Our district is going virtual until the end of the first marking period, then we will go to a hybrid model.

My school serves students from kindergarten through eighth grade.

We are a Title I school and all our students are eligible to receive free lunches. The students in this school are hardworking and eager to learn. Unfortunately, our students don't always have the basic supplies needed and now we need even more to keep them safe.

Since I am new to the school, I would love to help improve their learning environment.

My Project

A document camera will help show students written text and will be a life saver for Math. I am a learning support teacher and many students are visual learners. During summer school, I tried to use a mini whiteboards to model math problems, but when I show the board, it appears backwards. I also mailed or delivered white boards to students but it was still very challenging.

I would love to be able to show students books, lessons and have the ability to model math problems.

A document camera will allow me show the class manipulatives as well, since they won't have access to any manipulatives at home.
