My Students

My sixth grade math students are extraordinary thinkers of all ability levels. They come from a variety of backgrounds and home structures. In my classroom, our motto is that "we make easy happen through hard work and perseverance." My students know that success doesn't look the same for everyone, but that if they work hard and try they can reach their goals. Our school is the only 6-8 middle school in our district. We serve around 450 students of which 65% qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. Our school strives to create a fun, compassionate, and stimulating environment to learn.

My Project

This project is for a Microsoft Surface Pro that will allow me to turn my classroom into an exciting place to learn. The technology in a Surface far surpasses what we currently have now in our classrooms. The Surface Pro will allow my students to have access to documents and devices that they cannot access on a tablet. Unlike a tablet, it can be connected to a projector and students can demonstrate math knowledge with the stylus and they can learn from each other. The benefit of the Surface Pro is that it can access apps that my desktop cannot. So my students are able to get the best of both worlds in the classroom. Being able to demonstrate math concepts and use technology that is currently unavailable to them now will allow them to connect to concepts in a way they never have before. This Surface Pro will also allow me to record lessons so that my students who are not able to be in class can get the instruction that they need. Students are often sick or out for various reasons and being able to watch what we do will keep them from being behind when they return.
