My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They love hands-on, engaging project-based learning and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Most of my students come from low income homes and only use technology when they are at school.

My classroom of 20 students really needs your help since it is a Title 1 school with limited resources.

My Project

The Alexa Echo can do so much with students! It can read stories, respond to questions, and even assist with teaching math skills. The Amazon Echo will be used to guide independent research in our classroom. Students will be able to ask it questions about any subject and take notes while doing so. The device can provide definitions and synonyms for words.

With Amazon Alexa in my classroom, I can transform teaching into an interactive learning experience.

We can ask Alexa about the weather, animals, and even the human body. Alexa includes tools like Science Buddy and Science News Headlines. Alexa also has games such as "Roll the Dice," and can be used to check student's math work after completion. There is so much that Alexa can do to engage students, it is such an amazing teaching tool.
