My Students

My main focus is Learning Support. Therefore, my students are dealing with barriers which carry over into mental roadblocks. Additionally, some are from families just recently came to the United States, and English is not their first language. However, these characteristics cannot be looked upon as handicaps. Their hard work and extra effort show​ them that they are indeed capable of anything they put their mind to.

The students who come into Learning Support flourish as they begin to see how much they can accomplish with just a little nudge.

The support provided to the students allows them to seek answers to their own questions with slight guidance as they learn to problem solve.

We are a public city school so most of the children come from low-income families that are struggling to make ends meet. Many of these kids will soon be young adults and may be dealing with hardships in their home environments that take the focus away from studies. They also suffer when at school due to the financial instability of the school district which has resulted in school closings.

My Project

Having access to an Apple iPad will bring my students closer to the 21st century classroom. Classrooms today are still stuck in Education 2.0 when educators were preparing students for more manual labor. The workforce of today is looking for people who are knowledgeable with technology. By having an iPad in our room, we will have access to anything!

Being from lower socio-economic households, many students have no idea how to properly use technology, but an iPad with apps can take us there!

One of the greatest gifts of all is having the same access to technology that the students down the street has. The next best thing for educators is to have these technologies available for all.
