Yes, my school is a high performing school in the middle of Silicon Valley and the charming Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose.
I have taught first grade for 14 years and I have been at this school for 16 years.
First graders love their school and their teacher. They love coming to school and they love to learn! They are the most inspirational kids on Earth and I love providing them with the best education possible!
My classroom is focused on developing 21st Century Skills which include collaboration, communication, and digital literacy.
My students are hard workers who LOVE technology and I am determined to give them fun and creative projects that promote and strengthen those 21st Century Skills.
My classroom is limited to the projects we can do because we do not have enough iPads for the students to use in small groups. Students use the iPads to post their work online and share it with their parents using an app called Seesaw.
Students will be able to use these iPads to listen to books read aloud, read online, take comprehension quizzes and do research reports!
