My Students

I teach Math and Science to 40 eager 3rd graders from a variety of backgrounds. I teach at a low-income school where over 75% of the students are on free or reduced lunches. These kids come to school every morning with a smile on their face and ready to learn regardless of their home life.

My students are growing up in a generation where technology is the forefront.

All of my students love using technology because it is engaging. The students are extremely motivated to create, explore, and share through amazing educational programs such as ClassDojo, SeeSaw, Nearpod, and Flipgrid!

My Project

My students are curious, creative, and eager to explore and learn! They enjoy using technology for research projects in Science and educational Mathematics programs. I love to incorporate Brainpop, Nearpod, and other learning activities into my lesson. It is very hard to incorporate this technology into my classroom when I have 5 outdated laptops for 20 students.

Having reliable technology is imperative to a successful engaging learning environment.

Third grade is the first year these students are state tested (FSA). One way we prepare them for this test is through mathematical fluency practice and spiral reviews. My students are required to be at "tech" time for 20 minutes a day on a program called Reflex Math (educational fluency learning program online). However, the students hardly get 10 minutes on this program due to the out dated technology we are provided. It takes over 5 minutes for the computer to load to a log-in screen and another 5 minutes to log-on once the students have put their information in.

Not having reliable technology is taking from my students learning opportunities.

I would love to be able to get a few updated Chromebooks into my classroom to help my students excel in their learning!
