My Students

I teach a special day class that is filled with awesome students who love learning and coming to school every day. My students are always seeking a challenge and enjoy the feeling of success when completing a task or an assignment. I enjoy being an educator and helping shape the minds and hearts of our future leaders. The learning process is an enjoyable task for my students. My students enjoy the challenge on a daily basis.

My students are happy, motivated, and awesome children who love doing their best on any given task.

Our school is a beautiful campus that has a welcoming environment for all students, parents, teachers, and staff.

My Project

My students will use the films requested for the instant camera that we currently have in the classroom. The film will be used to take pictures for the writing process of various genres such as narrative, opinion, and informative. My students will take pictures and document various writing assignments through the pictures. For example, we will work on narrative writing, my students will take pictures and write a short narrative, based on the pictures that were taking using the film that is requested. My students will be learning multiple common core state standard that cover writing, reading, and math. My students will be able to use the camera and film to take pictures of their surroundings at school to assist in the writing process. They will use the pictures as a writing prompt to write narrative pieces about the picture taken using the camera and film requested in the project. My students will be meeting multiple Common Core Standards through writing narrative pieces of writing. My students will learn various writing skills such as writing introduction sentences, supporting, and concluding sentences in a paragraph that will be inspired by the pictures taken through the use of the camera.

My current and future students will benefit from all of the materials for many more years to come.
