My Students

We are a united sixth grade class. We come from a small rural area in Utah. We have bright, intelligent students who are eager to learn and apply themselves in every subject. I like to challenge my students to take their learning a step further.

Having limited time, we have to integrate all the subjects into one another.

By doing so, we can process more information and learn more. We like to explore History like Christopher Columbus. We like to tinker with Math like Albert Einstein. We write to emulate Shakespeare. Science is being discovered much as Marie Curie did, by accident and using the Scientific Method. We are building readers that can author a book and strengthen the reading community.

If my students dream enough, they can become what they set their mind to. Having a positive mind set, being a community leader, perseverance, empathy, gratitude and mindfulness will develop them into the leaders of tomorrow.

My Project

As a teacher I can project artifacts, photos, worksheets, and anything else that can fit under the camera lens. In addition, students are better able to see the image produced by a document camera as it is much brighter and clearer than the image produced by the overhead projector.

My favorite use of the document camera is allowing me to spotlight and share exemplar student work.

A document camera can be used with microscopes, students displaying their work, you can zoom in on pictures/details. Work done on the document camera can be saved to the computer and later accessed by the students and myself. Saving paper and copies is helpful in helping the Earth and reducing the cost of supplies.

Having this amazing technology device allows me to integrate many subjects, have a diverse classroom and interactive relationship between the students and myself.
