My Students

My 2nd graders come into school every morning full of life and ready to learn! They're always walking in with smiles on their faces, and I'm lucky enough to get a great big hug from them each and every morning when they get to school and another right before they leave.

I teach at a Title I school where 95% of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

Many of them live with multiple family members. Some have moved around so much that they have been in four different schools by the time they are in second grade. Yet, they always come in with a fresh attitude and willing to learn.

My Project

School is no longer just pencil/paper activities. As technology has advanced, so has the uses for it in the classroom. The students are challenged to become technologically literate so they can become participating members of school society, and eventually part of the working force.

My second graders LOVE learning through many outlets but anything technological immediately get's their attention.

They are becoming literate in Power-Point, Google Forms, acceptable educational streaming sights, etc. The BIGGEST issue that is challenging their learning is so simple, broken headphones. The headphones provided have gone through countless years and hundreds of little hands.

If my students were given headphones to use, their productivity would skyrocket. They would be able to use their valuable time truly focused on whatever multimedia content needed to gain access to information and produce quality work.
