My Students

My students are all hardworking, caring, and committed to their education even at a young age. A day in my classroom consists of a lot of direct instruction, where I am teaching the students the skills to become future leaders. We always start our day with a promise to be the best we can be!

The school my students attend is amazing.

There is so much parental and administrative support, and the group of teachers here is dedicated to their jobs. Students come to school ready to learn with high expectations and accountability.

My Project

With the addition of this iPad into our classroom, we will be one of the only classrooms in the school that has access to such technology. My students will be able to access apps that reinforce skills and enable higher-level learning. An iPad helps students who are kinesthetic and visual learners open up the doors of education and individualize their learning experiences. The iPad will become a tool that will help create more authentic learning experiences in the classroom as well as build twenty-first-century skills that our children need in order to be successful in a quickly evolving technical world. My students will be able to work in centers with the iPads, writing, reading, learning phonemic awareness skills, working with math manipulatives and more. They will receive adaptive technology while waiting in the progress monitoring or I.E.P. process. They will be able to create both independent and collaborative projects in order to show true understanding of concepts.

iPads are integral and amazing tools that should be present in every classroom.

Without consistent access to technology, my students are not able to access 21st-century skills. I believe that they should not be held back because of lack of funds, but deserve to explore and learn on the same level as students who have this access. Our classroom will be forever changed by the addition of iPads. All students will be able to access learning through technology on a daily basis - amazing!
