I conduct home visits for my students. In doing this I establish a personal connection with each child. I witness their home life and interactions among their family. I see that they come from families that are riddled with inter-generational economic challenges, language barriers, and a variety of immigrant stresses and legal issues. Collectively, my students are the embodiment of the kind of human goodness that is born from long standing family struggles that are managed with sincerity and optimism.
Their families understand and prioritize the value of their children's education.
My students are responsible beyond their years. They look for ways to be of service and are respectful of the school environment and its authorities. Generally they arrive at school punctually -ready to learn, to the point that 95% of my class received "Perfect Attendance" for the entirety of the 2016-17 school year!
After a unit study of American historical figures, a student of Mexican descent told everyone during morning circle that he wants to be Martin Luther King Jr. when he grows up. His sentiments were echoed by his peers. My scholars need your support to thrive as they grow into model citizens.
I plan to use these iPads as a one on one teaching tool and once the student is familiar with the pre selected educational software students will use them for independent practice.
It is important to me that my students are tech savvy and have access to electronic academic content that will maximize their early reading, writing, and numeric skills development.
My students are eager to learn and relish the opportunity for independent practice presented in the format of video games and animated presentation.
I look forward to implementing iPads in the classroom because this technology is reliable and offers a medium that is relevant and elegant. I have software programs and have curated online content that has been created with the young learner in mind. I will use the technology to enforce letter name/sound, letter/number formation and number fluency.
