My Students

Kindergarten is the foundation that lays all the groundwork for the rest of your education. I want all of my students to have a positive experience with school. My students come from a rural, poverty stricken area in northern Michigan. There are not a lot of resources for students to receive out of school cultural learning experiences such as museums, zoos, aquariums, and play groups.

During the school day, I try to expose my students to the world.

I want my students to be prepared to face the world with the "I can and I will" attitude.

My Project

During the unprecedented times I have had to change my model of teaching from face to face to online through videos and video chats. Using a ring light iPad stand it will allow me to easily set up my iPad to read stories to students, and teach familiar lessons to students that I can share with them via the internet.

There is nothing more that my students enjoy then hearing their teacher's voice and seeing my familiar face to teach them new content.

The ring light will allow me to easily perform this new task of distance learning.
