My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

For a science program, technology is a crucial part of learning. In order to bring a new realm of technology into the Middle School Science Department, I am asking for a new way to access that technology.

Our Science Department would greatly benefit from the addition of a classroom iPad.

Having an iPad would enable my students to use apps like Oreoco, Nearpod, Plickers and many more apps that are helpful in the pursuit of science mastery. This iPad would also help me as an educator to be constantly assessing and monitoring my students. The iPad would also give me the opportunity for one on one demonstrations with my students. Please consider helping the science department by providing an iPad for my classroom.
