My Students

My students are a diverse group of students from all around the Dallas area. These students have chosen to study here and strive to exemplify Trust, Respect, and Responsibility via the use of technology. We are a small school that is aiming to be one of the best schools in the Dallas area.

The students of my school are as varied as the locations of Dallas they hail from.

They need access to varied literature across varied media to ensure they are prepared for the requirements and expectations of a Post Secondary student in college and beyond.

My Project

There are various things my classroom needs for optimal learning. We need a fan, for when the temperature in the classroom is too high, and a mouse, for quick movement between digital content in tight spaces and books, for test prep and general interest reading including The Hobbit, Of Mice and Men, Journey to Star Wars and more. Finally we need miscellaneous supplies including markers and pens for collaborative work.

My project is about updating my preparation and classroom environment to meet the needs of my students.

These various items will allow me to provide my students with an additional level of support that may not be available to me in a regular school year. These items will help my students prepare for college and the world beyond the classroom.
