My Students

The students at my school come from a wonderfully diverse set of backgrounds. My school is located in the heart of a mid-sized city where there is such a vast mix of poverty and affluence. Our school serves all of these families.

Our school is a Title I school because many of our families are living in poverty.

Many of the students are not afforded many experiences outside of what they see at school. The school is very old and in need of updates to serve these students to the highest level.

My Project

I am working on helping my students grow their reading skills. Many of my students come to middle school reading three to four grades below what they should be.

By meeting my students where they are, I can help them individually with expanding their horizons, while allowing them to not deal with the embarrassment of being behind.

With the addition of an iPad in my classroom, I will be able to develop and plan lessons utilizing apps that meet the learning needs of all my students on their independent level. The iPad will become a tool that will help create more authentic learning experiences and conversations in my classroom, as well as build relationships where the students feel safe and accepted for the level in which they enter my classroom.
