Working at a title one school is one of the most rewarding experiences you could ever imagine. I love being that person my students are able to talk to about things going on in their home lives and be that advocate for them. There are several of my kids that come from drug families so they get little to no educational or emotional support at home. That is where a teacher steps in and is their second mom, nurse, therapist, comforter, etc. Teaching is so much more than teaching these days. My kids have the potential to be so much more than what they come from and that is my job to give them the confidence they need to succeed.
Kids these days are technology driven so I want to give my students the opportunity to grow through learning games and give them the opportunity to get read books online to expand their knowledge. Some kids are not read to at home and it is important for a child to learn an author’s voice. iPads give students the opportunity to further their education. Technology has a way of engaging students and gets them excited to learn. We also have the opportunity to teach students to research a variety of topics but need more access to do so. We do not have immediate access to computer labs so we would like to have more opportunities to do things within our classroom.
