My Students

I have the privilege of teaching at a NEW elementary school in Washington, D.C. for the 2018-19 school year. I will be shifting to a third grade position, where we will be focused on our writing skills and STEM integration. I am excited to meet my new community and truly phenomenal students. I have no doubt my new class will come to school each morning full of energy, questions, and wonder.

My new school is a newly appointed STEM school, and I am working with the STEM coordinator to amp up the classroom environment and bring our third graders’ minds to life!

My Project

In our classroom, students are learning to do independent research about a topic and learning how to use WeVideo and iMovie to demonstrate their learning in a visual way.

Three of the iPads we have are too old to allow iMovie to run--without those iPads students have to wait quite a long time or collaborative groups get too big.

We need a new iPad to ensure we can work in small groups and have our voices heard.

Having an additional iPad in the classroom allows students to collect information and pictures from the internet, record themselves, and respond on a number of platforms. We need a new iPad!
