My Students

Sparking an interest in reading is so different from my childhood experience. Capturing and maintain a child's attention, introducing new technology, and creating a productive learning environment require a well-rounded approach.

The students at my school combine classroom learning and intelligence with a healthy body approach and character trait development.

Our school has a bonus benefit of helping students with ADHD, learning disabilities, a variety of English language proficiency. and demographic backgrounds. In our growing community, we stand out as a whole-child learning school.

My Project

Body, mind and soul are the three pillars that make a classroom come alive. My school in Herriman, UT provides all three. As a new third grade teacher, making reading jump off the page is critical- yet I am in need of technology to get my program "up and running." Having already purchased six Kindles myself, this project will give my students an excellent opportunity to succeed in both reading and math. Using learning apps, the students can work individually and in pairs to develop literacy and math skills. Every child should have access to technology in the classroom, and I intend to give my students this opportunity- with your help. Thanks so much for your support!
