My Students

My students come from many different countries across the globe. They speak multiple languages and have some incredible life stories that I love to listen to as I learn about each of them. Their experiences are both incredible and harrowing, and yet we all come together in the same classroom to find comfort, education, a positive environment, and unique learning experiences.

What makes these students so special is that they all have something to teach each other, and they always have something to teach me.

Each year, I learn a great deal about my students and about the experiences they've had and the places they've been. In a world where new technology and traditional education is always at our fingertips, it's meaningful for me as a teacher to expose my students to special opportunities, unique trips, and a comfortable setting where learning is evident and expected, and all students will remain engaged so that we can try new things and always remain successful. I hope to engage disengaged students by giving them reasons to come to school and get excited about learning!

My Project

This project is another special opportunity for our students to build the materials that they need for our new Academic Center. My students love books and keep asking for new books so I've added some specific requests that students made. I am also hoping to increase our use of technology in the classroom and our new resource room and this is the perfect way to request new technology for the students.

The focus of this project is to have laptops available for students to use after school in our new Academic Center, and to include a printer to help them print resources, assignments, and homework.
