My Students

My school is Title I, and 100% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch due to the high rate of poverty in the area. Our students are very diverse and come from many different backgrounds. Being that this is a preK-8 school, several students stay here throughout their entire elementary and middle school years. Getting to watch them continue to grow beyond my classroom is an incredibly special bunch with a lot of heart. These kids have each other's backs and are quick to help others in need. I love how supportive and enthusiastic they are when their peers reach their goals. They are also very excited to utilize more technology during the school day. Next school year, I have the honor of getting to teach 2nd grade so I will get to continue to work with many of my current students.

My Project

Next year, my students will have 1:1 access to technology. Each student will have their own Chromebook to use to help them become successful and competitive in our technology-driven society. This project will help ensure that students have quality headphones, a stylus to help make writing easier when using the touchscreen, and storage to keep the headphones organized and protected while not in use.

The headphones will help the students stay focused when working on individual assignments and projects.

The classroom can be a noisy place, and this will help them to hear what they are working on more easily. The headphones also have a microphone which will allow students to record various responses such as a retelling a story, explaining their process to solve math problems or listening to themselves read a passage for fluency.
