My Students

Every day is a new day. Another chance to learn, grow, and experience new things. My students are still at the beginning of their student lives, with an abundance of opportunities left to fall in love with learning. It is a privilege for me to help create opportunities for each student to find their own passion for learning, however, some come easier than others. While some come prepared with all the tools they need, and view school as a place to learn and grow, others come from low-income families and see school as so much more. To these students, school is not just a place to learn, but a safe haven. My school is a Title 1 school, with many of the students coming from families with limited resources.

Regardless of their situations, school can become a safe place for all students to come to learn, allowing them to become the bright young minds of the future.

To help foster their creativity and critical thinking skills I try to find engaging and interactive ways for my students to learn. Technology is a great way to meet the different needs of my students, and instill a love for learning.

My Project

My students have the opportunity to become lovers of learning at a young age. In a society that continues to become more advanced in technology, my students must not only learn a great deal of skills, they must also become familiar with technological devices. Through the use of the requested Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablets in the classroom, my first graders will not only advance their skills in technology, but will become familiar and comfortable with using such resources to help them learn in a fun and interactive way.

With the help of technology in the classroom, students can participate in new and innovative forms of learning that will help them engage in different ways.

This can enhance student learning by creating an opportunity for extra support based on their specific learning needs.

Use of technology in the classroom will also help to foster creativity, and opportunities for students to use logic and problem solving skills to complete educational activities.
