My Students

I teach at a public school located in Alabama. It has around 124 students in Kindergarten through sixth grade. My classroom is filled with 18 smiling faces that are ready to learn and they come with diverse backgrounds. Some of my students have previous school background, as in pre-K, while some come to me with none.

My Kinders enjoy coming to school each day and love technology.

They are hard-working, determined, and persistent to master what I set before them. And, I cant wait to show you what we can do with a little help from you!

My Project

Technology, Technology, Technology! Our school has computers in each classroom, but some do not work. I would love to incorporate more technology into my class. My Kinders love being able to use computers and tablets to understand how math works. My Kinders do not have a whole lot of technology at home, so I would love to have more opportunities for them to interact with the 3 Fire tablets, cases and headphones in the classroom.

My Kinders enjoy using tablets, so I would love to create an STMath center.

STMath is an engaging, motivating, and challenging app that my Kinders will use to build deep conceptual understanding of math through rigorous learning and creative problem-solving.
