My Students

My students are a group of excited, eager, and engaged first graders. They love to explore and create. They are independent and are always looking for opportunities to grow as learners. How we learn, gather, and share information has changed.

Technology is motivating to students, not only to learn but share what we have learned!

They love being able to choose the path for their academic and personal success. It's a wonderful time to be a primary student in our innovative classroom. We want to capitalize on their excitement and wonder to prepare them for the future.

My Project

“If we are going to help our students thrive, we have to move past “the way we have always done it,” and create better learning experiences for our students than we had ourselves. - George Couros

Technology, 21st-century skills, and independent learning will allow our students to move into a whole new classroom experience.

Our goal is to add 6 Chromebooks to our classroom to help prepare our students for the future. These Chromebooks will allow our students to create, collaborate, and share their learning in all content areas. They will be able to document their growth by creating a digital portfolio and assess their growth by collaborating with fellow students or by independent reflection. By adding these devices to the classroom, the world of opportunity opens in all content areas and creates a new experience for our learners.
