My Students

My students love to learn! They love to move and are excited to find out about our world. They are inquisitive and have many interests that continue to push their thinking. As a class, we work on encouraging each other to focus on our strengths which in turn builds confidence in all that we do.

About 53% of our students are on free or reduced lunch.

We live in a suburb of Detroit. I have five special education students and others who are below grade level. In our classroom we learn, laugh, and love!

My Project

Many students learn through physical movement. Many times this is challenging to incorporate in a classroom. The Qball and microphone system will allow students to physically throw a ball and be excited to contribute to lessons. By adding this device, vocabulary lessons, grammar lessons, factual reviews, questioning skills and so many more will be turned into an activity students will crave to partake in.

Along with the fabulous Qball microphone system, this project will also provide our classroom with a wireless headphone/microphone that will allow students to produce online reflections.

Through the use of this microphone, students will be able to record their thinking and push their ideas. This will improve their critical thinking skills as well as their communication skills.
