My Students

Our school is tucked into a suburban Indianapolis neighborhood and serves over 750 students in grades 1-5. Students at my school are from a wide range of family backgrounds, diverse cultures, and socio-economic status. The diversity of our population brings with it a wide range of abilities, traditions, and life experiences.

Children of refugees come to learn alongside peers whose grandparents attended school here.

Students are eager to learn, to make friends, and to become part of a thriving community that grows every child.

My Project

Some of my fondest memories of early literacy are of listening to books read aloud. I can still hear Mrs. Fox's voice growling out the troll's threats or squeaking like a mouse as she shared stories. Then as I learned to read, I mimicked her style to breathe life into those same stories.

One dream for my students is that they will approach reading with a sense of enthusiasm; that as they read, they'll give voice to characters and emotion to each scene.

Microphone headsets will allow students to not only hear a model of great reading, but equip them to show off their own great reading skills. These headsets will be used as students practice fluency, using their student computers to record their own fluent reading of text. These recordings can be shared with peers, offering students opportunity to build their storytelling skills.
