I teach in a low-income, high poverty district. Over 90% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches based on their socio-economic backgrounds.
Although my students may not HAVE the best, I know that they can BE the best.
They have an eagerness to learn that fills my classroom with energy. Being an Oklahoma teacher in these times is a very difficult situation. Since our classrooms do not have the funding needed to supply my students with materials that will excite them, I am making it my mission to find the materials to keep the momentum of excitement in my classroom continuous.
By incorporating tablets into my math classes, I am opening a door to many learning opportunities. By using technology in my classroom I am not only teaching students basic math skills, but I am helping them with computer skills and technology skills that will brighten their futures.
By using tablets in the classroom I am able to keep math class interesting while helping save the environment.
By using tablets, I am able to assign homework lessons on-line that will reduce the use of paper in my classroom while presenting the material in a way that makes the students excited to complete their work.
