My Students

I teach 7th grade science in a STEM school that is a combination middle and high school. We are a school of choice that serves students who are interested in the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Our student body has a rich mixture of cultural and ethnic backgrounds from all over our community.

My students are fun-loving, competitive, and curious.

They deserve to have a classroom environment that caters to their personalities and learning styles in order to be as successful as possible.

My Project

Students are sometimes given the opportunity to use earbuds or headphones in class while working, but not all students have their own. When students are not working independently, we are often practicing and reviewing material in small groups. During these times, students enjoy competing against their classmates, but keeping track of responses can be difficult with over 30 students.

These items will help transform my classroom into a space where students feel confident and excited to learn and study.

The headphones will be used with our class set of Chromebooks so students can work independently during differentiated instructional times where they can listen to stories, instructional videos, and explore autonomously.
