My Students

I am a third grade teacher to 24 kind, respectful and thoughtful students. Each day, we try to make the most of the time we spend together. We learn from each other as we celebrate our successes and learn from our failures.

My students are simply amazing.

They deserve my best every single day and that is what I strive to give them. I want our classroom to be a safe place where they feel comfortable to speak their minds, defend their thoughts and take risks.

My Project

I recently completed a project for five sets of headphones. They have been an amazing addition to our classroom! I try my best to provide my students with experiences that will prepare them for the future. My students use the Chromebooks we have in our classroom every day. They use them to view videos, reinforce skills using different learning games and have even begun to record and edit their own video responses! The five that we have are wonderful, but they aren't enough!

In order for my students to access this important technology or engage in it fully, they need more of these high quality headphones!

My students are eager to learn and do their best. However, they often get frustrated when they’re unable to focus or produce quality videos because of broken or low quality headphones. The headphones in this project also have built-in microphones. They will replace the ineffective headphones we have now and will allow my students to be active participants in their learning. Providing my students with quality headphones will create a quieter and calmer classroom, that is better suited for learning and will help set my students up for success! Additionally, I will use the laminating sheets to laminate different activity sheets the students will use while on the chromebooks!
