My Students

"The only way of finding the limits of possible is by going beyond them into the impossible."-Arthur C. Clarke My goal is to help inspire students to achieve their goals and do their best!

I teach at a middle school in rural SC.

About 75% of my students are on free and reduced lunch. My school is very diverse and has an increasing number of students that are English language learners. Many of my students face tough challenges at home, but I still set high expectations for them. We work together to achieve their goals.

My Project

Many of my students are being required to be technologically proficient, but do not have access to computers and other types of technology at home. I am requesting headphones for my students so they can have access to videos, lectures and games without causing disruption. I am also requesting headphones for my students because I am hoping to implement a version of the Flipped Model Classroom. This teaching method places more responsibility on the student to learn the information through various types of lectures and media at their own pace. The teacher is to take on the role of a facilitator instead of being the center of attention during lectures.

Headphones would have a great impact in my classroom.

Students would be able to complete their work and activities at their own pace. This would allow me to challenge students who master their content knowledge early and help students struggling to understand concepts.
