My Students

I teach 7th Grade students in East Village (San Diego). Over the course of the day, I see 60 diverse students in my Math/Science classes.

My students bring to school each day a zest for life that makes them both active busy learners.

Their zest is what fuels my passion to teach them and assist them in furthering their goals and endeavors. I strive each and everyday to reach my students using various methods of science, technology, engineering, art and math.

My Project

My students will be utilizing the Echo and bell as ways of helping them to transition from one activity to the next. The Echo will be utilized as work music to help them concentrate and expand their ear. Students will use the books to help further their knowledge of subject material being studied where they do not have these textbooks currently in the classroom.

Your project will help support their efforts in better presentations, transitions and knowledge.

The pointer/clicker will be utilized to help students transition from slide to slide while allowing them to have the capability of not having to have someone flip their slide as they go. I will utilize it by having help with my instruction as I can point to vital information.
