My Students

Even though our school is currently closed... The hearts and minds of my students are wide open! Our students are mainly learning online through interactive lessons that I have designed. They are learning at home with the help of their parents, grandparents, older siblings, aunts, uncles and family friends. They are using desk top computers, laptop computers and even tablets in order to access their learning.

My Project

This project will provide needed technology for my students to document their experiences during this time of quarantine and uncertainty.

The Mac Book will be used as a travelling story recorder that will assist our kids in telling their stories their way.

Even though I have young learners of varying abilities, they each have something important to say about what they have been experiencing. Self expression is important for all people but especially for young people who may not feel heard. Young kis often get "lost" in the shuffle of life and as a result have no healthy outlet for their myriad of emotions. This project is an attempt to stop that from happening.

Every child has a voice. That voice deserves to be heard.
