My Students

Our amazing school has a diverse group of students from various socioeconomic backgrounds and many different ethnic groups. Even though my children and families face many difficulties, it is my goal to help my children grow from where they are when they enter my classroom and rise to their full potential.

I foster learning by creating a loving, safe environment filled with positive choices.

I teach the love of learning coupled with high expectations. Creating an environment that gives my students many opportunities daily to make positive choices that help them feel like they have control of their learning gives me great joy.

My Project

The Flex-Space Bundle will provide my students a comfortable place to use iPads. I use iPads for review of concepts as well as to support the needs of the varying abilities of the children. I also use Chromebooks to teach the children how to create slideshows and practice word processing.

By providing a comfortable place for the children to work, they will focus better on their technology tasks.

The Flex space, which includes 4 floor chairs and a low, round table, promotes better focus and provides choice, which helps children feel like they are more in charge of their learning. This space also improves collaboration, sharing, and fun.
