My Students

Our students are AWESOME! They are unique, creative, and talented. They come from all walks of life. We have a wonderful school and are surrounded by supportive parents and family members. Our school operates just like a community. We provide for our students emotionally, mentally, physically and educationally. The well-being of our students is our top priority.

WMES thrives on teaching the WHOLE child.

Not only do we focus on reading and math, but we also strive to teach our students science, social studies, and the arts. We are a school that is dedicated to creating 21st century learners. We can only do this if we have updated materials and resources.

Our school has approximately 475 students. We have four self-contained special needs classes, as well as one preschool class. Our teachers all have diverse backgrounds and exhibit a variety of teaching styles. Our teachers do a wonderful job of differentiating for our students.

My Project

We are trying hard to supply all fourth grade students with Chromebooks so that each classroom can be 1:1 with a technology device. This year many of our local and state assessments were given online. Teachers had to borrow devices from other grades to be able to complete the assessments. Next year, even more assessments will be online. It is imperative that we equip these classrooms with the necessary technology. We are trying to teach students how to be comfortable using technology at an early age. They can use these devices in small groups and individually to complete projects and assignments.

If used correctly, technology allows schools to better prepare students for future careers and allows teachers to teach students of all learning styles.

With technology students learn digital citizenship skills, learn how to navigate websites safely and effectively, and learn how to take ownership and responsibility for their own learning. These devices would be used in a fourth grade classroom to supplement the technology already in place. The students already have the basic knowledge of using Chromebooks. They just do not always have access to put this knowledge into practice. Students will be able to do research projects, as well as read eBooks, work on math practice, and participate in Google Classroom assignments and activities.
