My Students

All my students attend a public school in an urban environment. They are smart, energetic, and always eager to learn. Their favorite subject is science because of the different experiments we do, but they also enjoy working with their math tools and reading in large groups.

All my students are considered low income and qualify for free breakfast, lunch, and snack.

Many of my students speak a first language that is not English and are English Language Learners, and some have individualized educational plans because they have special learning styles.

Despite these obstacles and hardships, we are one big community inside of our classroom, and there is nothing better than seeing smiles on their faces during my lessons because they strive to succeed.

All of my students stand out in their own creative ways. We all enjoy getting to know each other throughout the school year!

My Project

I would like to use this powerful computer with my projector while teaching science, math, and ELA. With the number of students I have in my classroom, a computer is a great tool to pull up YouTube videos, use ClassDojo for classroom management, use Siri to ask questions quickly, use Google Translate to help translate with my non-English speakers, and the list could go on with so many positive uses. In the past, I have used my computer during book club as well. With my students who are still learning English, I will have the computer on their tables with YouTube so these students can have the book read to them.
