My Students

My students mostly come from the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona. While most enjoy modern conveniences such as cell phones and satellite tv, many are still without electricity and running water. For some, coming to school is an hour journey across the reservation that begins at 5am and ends after 6pm. Despite these hardships, my students like to come to school and they aspire to go to college, join the military and begin careers in welding and auto mechanics after graduation.

It is clear that the internet has changed life even in remote locations like the Navajo Nation.

My students are increasingly eager to interact with the worldwide web. For some, it is their window to the world. I hope to provide my students with more opportunities to work more with digital formats to prepare them for life in the 21st century workplace.

My Project

Our school district purchased a wonderful educational platform this year called Edgenuity. It pairs with NWEAs testing platform which we will use for benchmark testing. Everyone is excited to begin using these resources in class; however, we do not have computers for each classroom. We are limited to several labs dispersed throughout campus. The demand for lab time is high. Having several computers in class will enable me to differentiate instruction for students that incorporates the digital material included in Edgenuity.

Currently, only 26% of all 9th graders show proficiency in English Language Arts on the State Exam.

I believe that having regular access to Chromebooks in class, along with the new digital platforms will increase student learning and better prepare them for life after high school.
