My Students

My classroom makes up one of 42 classrooms (K-5) in a school that serves over 750 students K-5. Of our population, all the students who attend our school receive free and reduced-price lunch. We also start our days serving breakfast in the classrooms.

It is one of the largest elementary schools in our district and has a high population of students living in poverty.

We are a low-performing school that is fighting to challenge our students in any way possible. We are fighting every day to close the achievement gap, but it's hard when students don't have their most basic of needs.

Some students look forward to coming to school just to get away from their home environments and we, as teachers, try to make the most out of what materials we have. We as a school strive to meet the needs of our students as well as make a fun and engaging environment for each and every child.

My Project

My students are always excited to work through google classroom to submit work and work on projects. It is my goal to do away with much of the ever so boring worksheets and introduce students to programs like Flipgrid, Nearpod, ChatterPix, Zearn, scratch, Hour of Code and so much more! To do these things we are in need of more Chromebooks.

Students utilize a lot of time in centers within the classroom and it is my goal to create an interactive technology center where students are able to explore, create and invent using their knowledge within the mathematics curriculum.

Our school does have one Chromebook cart per grade level. Our classroom currently only has 4 Chromebooks and 3 desktops. I am trying to create a classroom that is 1 to 1 for technology access for students. This will allow students to have quick access to much needed technology within the classroom.
