My Students

My students are creative, full of questions, and ready to explore! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

Many students in my classroom come in saying they have difficulty completing their readings because they can not visualize the words in front of them.

Our school is nestled in the heart of a busy city in New Hampshire, which was once surrounded by bustling mills. Now, with many of them closed, the city is coming back to life with new industries and a bustling college town next door.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, different readings, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners who are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

Help me to give my students a wide variety of ways to learn. With an ever changing classroom and many different ways to teach students and appeal to their learning styles, a projector is the key to opening up their learning channels. This projector will continue to enhance the history-rich classroom that I strive to create. Students will be able to visually see how to analyze, synthesize, annotate, and understand documents of the past as well as the significance of past events helping students continue to learn about early American history.

Students will be able to become interested in the units we cover, due to the visual breakdown of each event.

The best way to increase interest is to explore events in depth and this projector will continue to help me and my students grow stronger in exploration and understanding. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in breaking down documents of the day we are currently studying, and this project will only help to enrich their experiences within the primary source world.
