My Students

"When you put faith, hope, and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world."-Zig Ziglar

I teach at a large elementary school in a diverse community that is one of the largest growing areas in the country!

In my classroom, I have the joy of working with 24 students, full of personality and excitement for learning! These children are truly a tight-knit community. I can teach them so many things, but what is truly remarkable about my students is how they support and encourage each other. My class is an Inclusion class, which means there is a range of learning styles and needs. Each one of these students is capable of reaching their goals, and I want to give them every opportunity possible to make this happen. My heart is to put the tools and resources in their hands in order to empower them to reach for their dreams, no matter what those dreams might be!

My Project

Technology is a growing part of our world and my children need the opportunity to use these amazing tools in their educational journey! Technology is essential to so many careers, and I want to give my students access to these resources at a young age. It is also an exciting and engaging way to learn! Having a Promethean board would give my students the chance to take learning in to their own hands. Students will have the chance to work together to accomplish learning goals every day. There is no limit to the opportunities available with a Promethean board; students can access Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies activities! They will have a hands-on opportunity to work together in groups to solve problems, create questions, and showcase their own learning in ways never available to them before. Technology puts students in the driver's seat for collaboration and project-based learning. This will become an integral piece of preparing my students for their future!

Having a Promethean board in my classroom will completely change the way my students learn.

This tool will open doors for them to be able to collaborate with their classmates and have ownership in their learning. Technology is NOT going away; I want my students to be comfortable using these tools to learn as well as build their leadership skills by working together in a group. Who wants to stare at a worksheet? A Promethean board literally puts a hands-on learning activity at their fingertips.
