My Students

My students are QUITE the bunch and in need of motivation and encouragement! Throughout their young lives, all they hear is negativity about the city in which most of them were born and are being raised. Teaching them can sometimes be challenging, so I try to come up with fun lessons and activities that will keep them focused and engaged while learning at the same time.

These students WANT to learn, and I want to make their learning experience exciting!

They are so used to being told what they can't do and some of them are starting to believe it. High school is on the horizon and they feel unprepared, like they can't compete with their peers who may come from different backgrounds or more affluent areas. It is important for them to develop pride in themselves and confidence in their abilities and I want to help!

My Project

Engage the Brain, NewPath Learning, Wordical and the other games for this project will allow my students to discover new and effective ways of learning Language Arts skills. After delivering instruction, students are often split into groups to practice specific skills. Sometimes, these learning stations can be boring and quite monotanous. I just want my students to experience the excitement that learning can bring.

Students shouldn't be limited to learning from text books!

Educational games are a fun way to engage students in the learning process, take ownership of their learning, all while having fun! Fun activities are normally "earned" throughout the day. Learning shouldn't have to be earned! This project will all me to provide MORE learning opportunities for my students during class. Every second counts!
