As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, I see my students faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. A majority of my students are English Language Learners. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide them with the tools they need to be successful in and outside of the classroom.
My students are creative, excited to learn, caring, and thoughtful to one another.
Our classroom is a safe and constant environment. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control what happens outside of school, however, I can certainly enhance their school experience. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire life long learning.
My classroom has 3 Chromebooks. We have decided that next year our Reading and Social Studies class will go Google! I teach 120 students daily....40 in each class! My instruction has been a bit "old-fashioned" but I am now ready to enter the Google world and inspire my students using Google classroom. My students will have an area set aside with Chromebooks to rotate through and complete Google classroom lessons daily! I am excited to expand my instruction to include the latest technology and am excited at the research that states "students are engaged using Google classroom lessons!" Let's enter the Google world with these awesome students!
