My Students

I teach in a public school on The Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek, South Carolina. Our student body is considered a "High Poverty" school due to the fact that the majority of our students receive free or reduced price lunch. Our school consists of military children as well as children in low income families.

Due to the nature of some military families and the fact that many parents are deployed throughout the year, many children are usually left with one parent at home for extended periods of time.

Also, the financial situations of many families having both parents working many hours result in several students' families strained for not only money, but time. This affects the students academically. My students' parents sacrifice so much for their children and for our country. I feel like it is my duty to serve them to the best of my ability. I give them all every day because I know their families can sometimes be away, giving their all, for our country.

My Project

All of our students want to learn to play makey makeys at least once in their lives. This helps them with building the self-esteem that they need. As they progress, they will be able to do team and independent work. Makey Makey's will play many roles in the program for the students. This will give all students a chance to integrate STEAM. This will enhance the environment in the classroom.

The Makey Makeys will be a great addition for the students.Students will be able to demonstrate their learning through computer programing.
