My Students

"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!" ~Dr. Seuss

My students are some of the most hardworking students I've ever had the pleasure of teaching.

They are a true embodiment of why I began teaching. They come from all walks of life, every demographic, and various cultural backgrounds. 100% of the students at our school receive free or reduced-price lunch, and there is a high number of military families.

Despite all of their differences, my students work together toward one common goal: to fulfill their desire to learn and experience new things. Even if it's something completely new to them, I love that they are so willing to try anything. Their thirst for knowledge at times is unquenchable, and they make coming to work each day a joy.

My Project

Here at our school, our English as a second language (ESL) program has experienced a significant increase in students. Our students come from several different countries and many of them do not speak English. The iPads will be used with a digital program we have purchased which delivers individualized instruction to meet the varied abilities and needs of our students.

Students will be able to use the iPads to access the program and receive instruction in their first language.

They will also be able to draw, record audio, take pictures, and shoot video. Built-in creativity tools, as well as many useful and research-based apps, provide diverse and authentic options for our ESL students to improve their language skills, practice oral language, and communicate in a variety of ways. These devices will support our students tremendously throughout their learning journey.
