My Students

In my classroom, all of the students are learning to speak, read and write in both English and Punjabi. It is not uncommon for a student to move to our school with little to no English speaking skills. Some students may have never been exposed to a formal school setting and may have just moved to the United States. It is my job to meet the needs of all the students and create a learning environment that is welcoming and exciting.

My Project

A classroom iPad opens the door for so many learning opportunities! With access to an iPad I am able to lead the students in video projects, digital book projects, hands on math activities and so much more. Students are inclined to working with and using technology as a tool for learning. The projects and lessons I am able to implement with the iPad are huge motivational tools for students, as well.

Through the use of iPad technology I can easily share pictures, projects and information with parents.

Our society is moving towards so many technological advances and our students are part of that movement. It is important to enable students to learn and excel in that field for their future jobs and careers.
