My Students

My students are inquisitive, thoughtful and very creative. They enjoy hands- on, active, and engaging projects that allows them to make sense of ideas with their own two hands. They come to our virtual class each day ready to engage and take chances to grow socially, emotionally, and academically. They are an AMAZING group!

Our school is headquartered in the South Bronx but the start of remote instruction means we are all commuting to learning experience online.

Many families are getting used to the new virtual model of learning and instruction.

My Project

In third grade, students are writing multi-paragraph essays. My school has provided tablets to all my students but it's difficult for them to hear writing prompts and imagine responses without headphones and sketchbooks.

These headphones and sketchbooks would enhance my students writing and creative abilities while making it easier for them to communicate their ideas.

With the start of digital learning my enthusiastic and engaged students would benefit from materials to support their learning at home and create opportunities to use their imaginations just like they would in class with me.
