My Students

We have entered an era in which education greatly relies on the use of technology. My hope is to offer this to as many of my students as possible.

My students are loud, opinionated, and run me in circles with their enthusiasm and ideas.

My school is the epitome of diversity, with many of my students originating from other countries, and many students will be the first of their family to attend college.

My Project

My schools' Honors program is run by an iPad pilot; the number of iPads available to the school determines how many students will be eligible for the program. I have several students in my classes who, because of the limited technology, are not able to participate in the more advanced classes where they would be better suited. There is a great deal of emphasis now on technology in the classroom and, while the quality of education is increased, the amount of students who are able to benefit is far below what it should be.

With the availability of more technology, more students will have the opportunity to participate in more advanced course studies and work towards AP-style material.

I will also be able to incorporate research projects and web-based assignments into my classroom, providing my standard and inclusion classes with the benefits of innovative classroom projects through the use of readily available technology as well.
