My Students

"There can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology, but if teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails." Nancy Kassebaum

Teaching inquisitive and eager to learn students in a low-income community I am compelled to not only teach my students how to use the latest technology but to maximize its potential.

Teaching has definitely given me insight into the potential of students when given the opportunity and resources to learn. This year I am excited about teaching 5th grade.

My Project

Using an Elmo document camera can help expedite our lessons. All students can be actively engaged and on task. This will decrease my students'€™ frustration since they would not have to wait for my attention. Furthermore, I can easily demonstrate students'€™ examples of exemplary assignments, applications, lessons, and not be bound to chalk and dry-erase boards to present.

Integrating technology is key to my student€™s' success.

Students will be engaged and retain more information leading to academic success. With your help, this school year we can integrate the use of the Elmo document camera.
