My Students

I teach in an awesome school system with so much potential. We have a mixture of students that live in the suburbs and open-enrollment students from the city. Students come ready to learn; however, they are not always provided with the resources to work to their full potential, both at their homes and at our school due to lack of funding.

I have had the pleasure to house and educate the full-inclusion classroom that is filled with students with and without disabilities for two years now.

I co-teach with a special education teacher. Together, we try to create differentiated, fun lessons that engage all students at all ability levels. We try to create an atmosphere that accepts student differences and embraces each and every one of their skill levels.

All of the students in our second grade come from diverse backgrounds and many different ability levels. As a team, we try to provide them with multi-modal learning opportunities to make sure we reach each student's needs.

My Project

My students love learning about force and motion during our STEM units. Many of the activities they do include magnets and their forces. However, it is challenging to demonstrate whole group anything magnetic because we do not have a large magnet board in class- just an old white shower board we use as a white board in the front of the class.

With that said, having a large 3 foot by 5 foot magnetic whiteboard in the front of the class hanging up would allow ALL of my 21 students access to seeing the content of my force and motion lessons easily from their seats.

I will be able to show them how magnets are pulled and pushed and they can practice themselves on the whiteboard.

This board can also be used to help them calculate measurements with their collaborative partners and not to worry about messing up as they can just easily erase and try again- all part of STEM'S theory of trial and error to learn! This whiteboard would be an amazing addition to our classroom and could be used for all subject areas as well.
