My Students

The students that I have the opportunity to work with this year are creative, energetic, and have a natural love of learning. They love to work with their hands and enjoy have the opportunities to choose activities that allow them to become natural inquires in their educational process.

I teach in a transitional school that services students at all economic levels.

I strive to provide an enriching experience as I differentiate the learning based on each student's readiness and abilities. Keeping students actively engaged in their learning is my number one goal!

My Project

I recently received 12 Chromebooks that we can use in our wonderful Media Center. I would like to have the ability for students to listen and read the wide range of e-books that are available during their scheduled and open times in the library.

The headphones allow the students to experience the literature of their choice and allow the environment of the library to be welcoming to all.

I purposely chose headphones that are only for listening and have the USB port. The headphones will be available for the students to use whenever they are using the Chromebooks. Many students enjoy the opportunity to read and listen to a wide variety of genres in our library space. This will also help in adding adaptations for our program with the wide range of needs we have in our student population.
