My Students

My students are 21st-century learners. They love using technology in our classroom and I integrate it as much as possible into all of the subject areas. My students are a bunch of inquisitive learners.

I teach at a small neighborhood school with approximately five hundred sixty students.

We first opened our doors in 1950. Arts in education is a major emphasis on our campus. Our school's mission is to develop children into life-long learners as a result of a challenging curriculum, individualized instruction, high expectations, and a nurturing environment with parental and community involvement.

My class is made up of sixteeen diverse students, from students with special needs to those who are identified as gifted and talented. I encourage my students to appreciate each other's differences, as well as find similarities among each other. They are very active, creative, and enjoy learning.

My Project

With a class full of first graders, it is hard for everyone to have a turn on a device. Right now I have access to five iPads in my classroom from the school, and four additional iPads from previous Donors Choose projects but it would be so helpful to have these requested Apple iPad so that additional students can access our wonderful online sites during our Literacy Centers and Math Rotation.

Empowering the students to work on their individual levels with the iPads on websites such as iStation Reading, DreamBox Math, Xtramath, and Brain POP Jr.

motivates them and gives them the additional instruction and support they need.

We also use our iPads several times a week to add items to our online portfolios with Seesaw. Students are empowered to explain their thinking, work with partners, and share their work with family members.

My goal is to eventually have my digital learners on one to one devices.
