My Students

Do you remember the excitement of approaching new ideas and ways of doing things? I have 28 wonderful fourth graders that come to school ready to learn each and every day. They range in abilities, interests, and cultural backgrounds. One thing that they have in common is that they are all a part of Ms. Pacific's class. We work hard to build a strong community in my classroom.

Within each day, I strive to incorporate the skills of reading, synthesizing, creating, and evaluating resources in a more collaborative approach.

I'm a firm believer in keeping the focus on what's really important: the students. If student motivation and higher engagement is truly the desired end game, then we, as teachers, must adapt right along with our students in our classrooms.

My Project

We are in need of a class set of headphones and earbuds so that students will be able to use iPads and Chromebooks without distractions or distracting others. Students use iPads and Chromebooks in partnerships, small groups, and independently to research, work towards mastery in our supplemental math program, and creating videos to teach others.

Using technology for many subjects is important in today's classrooms, specifically using technology that functions appropriately.

Currently, my class has four sets of headphones that are in pretty rough condition.

As a teacher, I provide direct and guided instruction to my students on a daily basis. With the assistance of these research-based programs, my students receive the individualized help they need in reading and math to complete any gaps in achievement they may have, leading them closer to reaching fourth grade proficiency!
