My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take more chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

Many students in my classroom need more opportunity to share their voice!

Our school is in southwestern Wyoming, our state is having a big push to get students ready for jobs that require computational thinking!

Each child in my computer lab absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Our students need to learn how to share their voice and be creative doing so.

Podcasting is a minimally intrusive activity that lets them share their thoughts and ideas while "hiding" behind a microphone!

Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
