My Students

My students come to school each day ready to try learn new things and take chances in order to grow both personally and academically. I teach a wide variety of students from Gifted and Talented, advanced learners, Special Education, English Language Learners, and dyslexia, along with general education students. Each student comes with their own challenges, but they are always willing to work hard to achieve and show growth in their learning.

Teaching is my passion!

I teach in a Title I middle school in Pearland, TX. Although we are blessed with many resources, not all resources are helpful for all my students. With such a great variety of students, I want to make sure I meeting the needs of all my students.

My Project

Students will be able to have hands on technology in the classroom at their disposal. The Fire tablets will allow students to access a wide variety of online reading resources. This includes online books, audio books, and fluency programs.

Technology is ever changing, and students are adapting with the change.

Technology will allow my students to take control of their own leaning, allowing them to work at their pace. I have a wide variety of learners in my class, which the Fire tablets will allow me to meet their diverse needs. Technology is everywhere. Help bring it to us too.
