My Students

My school is a Title I school with a demographic of 55% English Language learners. We sit in the heart of Washington, DC. I have a group of 80 students who are fun loving, eager-to-learn new things, excited about school and love to engineer, problem solve and read. My classroom would be considered a melting pot of cultural heritage and social needs. Many of my students have been in the US less than 4 years. They inspire me every day.

To meet their needs we incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, alternative seating, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

My Project

The vast majority of my students come from low income communities and lack many resources. My class deserves to have hands-on, real world activities that further their knowledge and keeps them engaged in higher learning.

Tapping the unique powers of these iPad will unleash neurocognitive learning capabilities in the brain that aren't often used during traditional instruction.

These 5 laptops will help my students connect with real world abstract concepts, global issues, and explore how science, math, reading, and social studies are closely connected.

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Science360 will provide easy access to engaging science, engineering images and video from around the globe. Students will also have access to a news feed featuring breaking news from NSF-funded institutions.

The iPad will also help my students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers.​
