My Students

My students are amazing, creative and full of passion. They absolutely love hands-on, active, and engaging activities! They come to school each day ready to learn and try new things.

Students in my class are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative.

They learn best when comfortable and in a comfortable environment. When using flexible seating, they take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. They are amazing!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning. In our classroom, 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 group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

These computers will give my students a hands on learning experience. When we are learning about new things in class, the students will have the ability to research areas of interest on their own, or in groups.

My students are visual learners and when participating in class these computers will give them the opportunity to give their minds the endless opportunities for knowledge that they crave.

My students need a little bit of motivation when learning, and these computers will provide tons of motivation. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in learning through technology, and this project will only help enrich their experiences.
