My Students

I teach students from every part of the learning spectrum. Many of these children are from low-level socioeconomic backgrounds. It can be a huge challenge to meet the very diverse needs of so many children within the same setting.

Most of my students were impacted by Hurricane Florence less than one year ago.

Many of these children are looking forward to a fresh start and to put the traumas of the previous year behind them. We are working to provide the supplies they need, the safety, and security they desire and the education that will carry them to a better future.

My Project

Our school does not have enough document cameras for every classroom. This would allow me to display work and manipulate it in front of students to guide them in what they should be doing as well. It would allow many of our lower-level students to follow what I'm doing without going out of their comfort zones and bringing attention to others that they are unsure of what I'm asking them to follow along with. Many of our students are very visual and need to see clearly what they should be doing - without feeling embarrassed and behind; something most middle schoolers feel, even when it's not true.

I also need a charging station to keep at their tables.

This would allow our students who completely forget to charge their devices or those who live in homes without power to charge the devices and keep working in class. We are often battling the problem of students not having their devices ready for classwork and then getting behind because they were not prepared. This would assist those who struggle in this area to still be successful in the classroom.
