My Students

This year I will be teaching sixth and eighth-grade Pre-AP students. There are even a few I had in 6th grade I’ll teach again this year; which will be fun. I have taught 6th and 8th grade for Travis for the last three years. The students at Travis are the most hardworking students I’ve taught.

Despite any challenges they face in their lives, they are bright and talented and always exceed my expectations.

We use many resources to learn, and they will be receiving their own IPad this year! The 8th graders must pass their state test to go to high school this year as well

My Project

My students will be getting iPads this year for the first time. They will not be given a stylus or earbuds, they will get a charger. I am highly anticipating that students will not bring their IPad charged or will lose their charger, and I would like them to have access to charging in my room.

In addition, they will not be provided with a stylus or earbuds and may not be able to provide those themselves.

I do not what a stylus, a dead iPad, or earbuds to keep them from learning. I believe these students will do good work, and I want to be able to supply them with what they need to be successful.
