My Students

I teach at a large, urban, public school with almost one thousand and thirty students. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with the majority of our students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Our school is one of the most ethnically diverse schools with a very active military influence.

I teach future authors, members of the military, doctors, teachers, engineers and productive future contributors to society.

I teach students who are always asking why and ready to take learning to the next step.

My Project

My students will use these iPads to create showcases of their work and catalog various aspects of their projects during science, math, reading and social studies. These projects will allow students to use their artistic and creative skills to access and demonstrate learning. These will be shared with families and school administrators during showcasing days. Students will introduce their assignments and slideshows and will compete for the most interesting project. Students will also engage their parents in learning by taking photos of their work and uploading it to their digital portfolios. Having these iPads will help support the home school relationship and will help support learning with technology in the classroom.
