My Students

My students are risk takers, innovators, and problem solvers. They are always up for a challenge and never back down. They amaze me each and every day, and they motivate me to be the best I can be, no matter what! Thinking about what is best for our students is the focus of our elementary school. Each teacher goes above and beyond to reach and teach all of our students.

Our teachers are researching and creating lessons that will prepare our students for twenty-first century learning.

Most of the students in our school depend upon the school to provide access to the Internet.

My Project

Did you know Makey Makey Kits can bring pictures and poetry to life? Makey Makey Kit projects are keeping technology literate children engaged and challenging them to design new projects for the Makey Makey. My students will use coding to add sound to their handwritten and typed poems by connecting them to the Makey Makey circuit board. Plus drawings will now be able to talk, sing, make sounds when hooked up to a Makey Makey circuit board and a chromebook or lap top.

The possibilities are endless for my 5th grade students.

Think of all the literacy skills they are using and learning in a nontraditional format. My students are dependent on classroom exposure to technology and hands-on experience. A large number of my students do not have access to the internet at home. The classroom is their technology hub and I need to make sure they are continuing to grow as readers, writers, and digital learners.
