My Students

I work in a diverse community both economically and ethnically. My students are in the Gifted Program in grades K-5 and come from all seven elementary schools in town. As a teacher, my goal is to empower my students and prepare them to be successful in the future.

My students love using technology, solving real-world problems, and using their voice to help build their community all while connecting to classrooms around the globe.

My students are motivated to learn and make positive changes in their community.

My Project

We will use the iPads in the classroom when working on STEAM projects, presentations, and robotics. The devices will help students learn 21st-century skills and solve real-world problems.

The iPads will allow students to share their learning with an authentic audience and help grow and develop their leadership skills by collaboratively working together on projects using the iPads.

Students will use the iPads when working with Dash and using Wonder Workshop APPS as well as when they create iMovies. iPads will be used for APPs like chatterpix, green screens, and many others which encourage creativity and higher order thinking skills in the classroom.
