My Students

My students love to experience new things. They come from various backgrounds but they all share the love of learning. With various backgrounds come a variety of experiences which the students come to school with.

My school is a true neighborhood school.

All students live within a 2-mile radius of the school. Some walk, ride bikes, skateboard or get dropped off by car. Approximately 25% of the students come from military families. We have an Anchor for Life program at our school to help the transition for military students moving. We also have 50% of the students coming from low-income families.

My Project

Throughout the school year, students work on a computer-based program to read nonfiction articles and answer comprehension questions. As they read, many of the articles are teaching them about finances throughout the world. Some have learned why Disneyland financially struggled in China due to a competitor park. Others have learned about Google creating stores without workers and how that will affect the economy and take jobs from people.

Students are thriving on reading articles that teach them real-world scenarios and financial news.

Our major struggle is getting students on computers regularly due to only having 6 Chromebooks within our room of 22 students. I can only take my class to use our school computer lab once a week for 45 minutes with each of my 2 classes. My goal is to eventually get 1-to-1 Chromebooks. Reading the articles daily will create more well-rounded individuals.
