My Students

Our school is a Title I school; our schools and many of my students were affected by Hurricane Harvey. They were affected so much that many of my students only have the clothing and supplies donated by the staff. Moreover, I see a decrease in their capabilities to focus because of the storm's impact on their daily lives. The time allocated to work with them has changed because parents are still trying to rebuild their homes. Although their lifestyles have changed,I desire the classroom to continue being their constant place of joy, and learning environment. In spite of the storm, I want my students to have the best educational opportunities possible. When they enter my classroom, I greet them with a loving smile, and or a hug as well as our morning chant "We thrive when we try". I want them to develop stronger reading and math skills in 4th Grade so they are well prepared for STAAR.

My Project

I want my classroom to resemble the wave of the future. Also, I value classroom management and having the technology accessible to my students would make for better classroom flow. For example, when I'm working in small groups, my students that are at their desk can work on systems such as MobyMax, Istation, or XtraMath instead of waiting to get on the computer.

Hurricane Harvey affected our technology leaving us with 4 computers for the entire 4th grade.

There have been many times that our 4th grade computers are down and my class wouldn't reach their technology goals on Renaissance Learning or Istation.

Now, I believe that will all change with the addition of more technology available to my students.
