My Students

I teach a great group of kiddos that range from Kinder to 5th grade!

My students love to STEM-UP to a good challenge and are eager to take tech to the next level!

These tiny Tech-Titans are part of the Gifted and Talented pull-out program. They are infinitely curious and fast-paced!

That presents me with the unique task of keeping the action fresh in my classroom, so that they are appropriately challenged and able to maximize their innovative potential.

This at times requires special supplies or updated technology that can strain a school’s already tight budget.

Please help my classroom continue to evolve into the innovative and educationally rigorous setting they deserve.

Thank you!

My Project

My students will use the iPad Pro to assist in the production of iMovies and other multimedia products that will be used across different subject areas.

The iPad will help students create quality multimedia productions that tell about who they are, what they've learned, and what they care about.

The work they put into their productions exposes the depths of their creativity and desire to put forth a great product.

My students use iMovie, green screen, stop motion, and other technology apps to create a variety of culminating digital products that show and share what they have learned in innovative ways.

Students are learning to create quality multimedia productions to share with the rest of the world. They write meaningful plays and scripts that address issues that are important to them, then bring them to life using technology.

They are learning to identify the intended audience and create a product that is both entertaining and informative. It is amazing to see my students collaborate on a project from scriptwriting to the end of the movie credits.
