My Students

My students are naturally always asking questions and always excited to engineer. They love to learn, they love to share their stories, they love to do good. They do good for each other, good for their families, do good for their school, do good for their world.

2nd graders have a pure belief that they can be whatever they want to be, fix whatever injustice that needs to be fixed, and solve any problem that needs to be solved.

As their teacher I strive daily to provide a classroom where they create, question, fail, succeed, communicate, laugh, learn, play, explore, and achieve.

My Project

As we embrace digital learning and all the wonderful possibilities of classroom devices, my kids often are disheartened when they produce written answers to submit to me. When you write on a tablet with your finger or a chubby stylus so much is lost. The quality of work goes down, neatness is nonexistent, and the movement itself is awkward. Have you signed your name on a digital device with your finger? You know what it feels like and you have seen your scribble of a signature. Now imagine doing work and submitting work created with your finger to your teacher. My students love using tablets but since they don't have typing skills yet they rely on writing answers all the time. I want my students to use a stylus so they feel at ease with technology. Finger writing is the worst. These new fine-point, pencil-like styli make it easy for kids to go from paper-pencil tasks to digital tasks without sacrificing penmanship or the development of fine-motor skills.
