My Students

Currently, I am teaching my 4th grade integrated co teaching classroom remotely using many many online platforms. My students log in daily to meet with my every morning and complete assignments using google classroom, ed puzzle and many other sites. I feel lucky to have either 100% or near 100% attendance each morning and students who can access all online assignments and resources.

My Project

Remote learning has been quite the journey so far! My school, my staff and most importantly my students are all doing their best! The only thing getting in my way, is my slow and old laptop computer! My computer freezes or crashes at least 3 times a day leaving me not only behind and frustrated with my work, but also often times leaving my students alone in their virtual classroom!

I am in need of a dependable and fully functioning computer to be the best teacher for my students that I can be!

I look forward to continue remote teaching/learning with my students on a computer that not only doesn't crash but also has a battery that can hold a charge and does not get pop alerts that "Your disc is full" all the time! A new computer would bring pleasure not only to me but to each and everyone of my 27 students and help to reduce some stress during this difficult time!
