My Students

As a teacher in a low-income (Title I) school, I have students who face hardships in and out of the classroom.

Despite all they face when they walk into the classroom, they are full of energy and excited to learn.

My students love to experience new things, work in groups, and engage in hands-on learning activities. I am always trying to find new and exciting ways for them to learn. In my room, they are not just my students, but they are my family.

My Project

My students love to learn through visuals such as pictures, sources, videos, and movies. Brain Pop provides videos, worksheets, lesson plans, and more resources for students to learn from. Think back to when you were in school and your teacher said that you were going to watch a video, remember how excited you were to not have to sit in your seat and listen to her/him talk or to have to read out of your textbook? That's how my students feel too.

We live in a world today where technology is advancing so our academic instruction needs to advance with it.

Brain Pop breaks down topics being discussed so that the students are learning information at a level that best fits their educational needs. It would be very beneficial to the achievement of the students in my classroom.
