My Students

My students are unique, gifted in their own ways, and in need of a champion. I teach around 300 7th grade students a year. My students are a mixture of socioeconomic levels, but with these different levels, come different struggles.

I strive to teach my students, using methods that are both creative and engaging so my students can find their own way to their success.

When learning is engaging to the whole child, students thrive, not just in my classroom, but in life.

My students don't always have the support at home that is needed to be successful in today's competitive learning environments. Teaching them their own power and problem solving skills is the best way for my students to succeed.

My Project

I am in need of a Nearpod subscription for my students to use as an amazing resource in our class. Nearpod helps us to explore and learn using our iPads in a more efficient and collaborative way. Our iPads are only a portal to learning, we need Nearpod to turn our portals into destinations, adventures, explorations, and successes for my students and the classroom. Nearpod is an app that allows students and teachers to collaborate and share their ideas in a whole group or small group setting.

Nearpod honestly revolutionizes the classroom environment, it has a variety of lessons that incorporate videos, activities, and slides to make interactive collaborative lessons, differentiated to any student's needs.

It also lets students share their amazing thoughts and ideas anonymously, so even the most shy student can be drawn out of their shell by collaborating with peers in a safe and uplifting way. I have used Nearpod in past years and I can not imagine my classroom with out it.
