My Students

Our school serves students from transitional kindergarten through 5th grade. The student body includes about 450 students altogether. The student body is widely diverse and 55% of students come from low-income families. Our school is a Title l school.

My fifth grade class includes 26 fabulous learners.

Our classroom setting includes students with different interests, experiences, learning styles and needs.

We strive to create a comfortable school environment in which students look forward to coming each day to develop their academic and social skills.

My Project

As a fifth grade teacher with 27 students, it is important to differentiate instruction and to keep track of small group and one-on-one conferences. Keeping track of data and conference notes leads to piles of paperwork and sprawled out notebooks. A classroom iPad will allow students to take the lead in documenting their own work and assessing their growth using digital portfolios.

An iPad is a simple solution to many of the organizational challenges that arise while working with so many students with various strengths and areas of need.

A classroom iPad will students to immediately upload photos of their own work to online portfolios. An iPad will make it easier students to share their work with families. In addition, a classroom iPad will allow me to differentiate instruction and identify applications that target students' individualized learning needs.
