My Students

My students are in high school and most come from a low socioeconomic status. They read, write, plan, annotate, analyze, study literature, and much more! My students are hard working.

The kids in my classes are dedicated to success, they come in early for extra help, and they all want to graduate high school.

My students deserve the best chance to be successful in high school and in their adult life. I am very proud to call myself their teacher.

My Project

A lot of students prefer to read on their phone. This creates a problem for the teacher because they do not know if they are really reading a book or not. To mitigate this, I would like to use Kindle eReaders in my classroom. If my students have access to the books they need, they will be successful.

My students enjoy using technology as much as possible in the classroom, and eReaders are a great way to provide them with this experience.

As stated above, it will also assure they are on task and not distracted by friends texting them.
