My Students

Nelson Mandela once said, " Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." I am trying to provide that weapon for my students as best as I can. I want to enrich their lives to help them make a change in the world.

I work at a school that is designated a Title I school because it serves a high percentage of students from low-income families.

It also has a high percentage of Limited English proficient students and children with disabilities. Our socio-economically disadvantaged students need and deserve the opportunity to enhance their learning. They all qualified for the free or reduced-price lunch program.

My Project

As I prepare to embark on a new school year, I must continue to put my students at the center of everything. This will require that I engage my students virtually in every way possible. My second grade students are very young and require extra support. I intend to teach language arts, math, science, social studies, and art virtual lessons that are purposeful, engaging, and inclusive. The laptop will help me deliver these lessons to my students virtually. Having a laptop at home will allow me to switch from my computer to my document camera with ease. Furthermore, the laptop will help me create lessons, Google Slides, powerpoints, and assessments for my students.

When I have a live audience of students it is absolutely crucial to maintain technical difficulties to a minimum in order to successfully teach an engaging lesson.

With your support, I can deliver high-quality virtual lessons that will support distance learning for all my students.
