My Students

Our school is diverse with a fairly even spread of students ethnically. It is comprised of 18% African American, 39% Asian, 25% Caucasian, and 15% Hispanic. Some of these students were affected by Hurricane Harvey with their homes being flooded while other students are hosting families of evacuees waiting for their homes to be repaired. I student taught at this school almost 11 years ago, was hired the next year and am still there. I've seen lots of siblings and watched students grow into adults. I now have a student who is a medical doctor, a student who has a daughter in school with my daughter, and another student who is a fellow math teacher in our district.

Many of my students are driven and ambitious; they have dreams of making their mark on the world.

A large group of them are first generation Americans and come from a variety of countries including Nigeria, India, and the Philippines. They have parents who have sacrificed much including leaving their home countries in order for their children to get an education. The children choose to honor their parents and thus work hard to be diligent students.

My Project

Having the Surface Pro will increase student engagement and collaboration because I will be able to teach from any location in the room.

This device allows me to be more accessible so students become more likely to ask questions.

For example, it’s possible to show a PowerPoint presentation on the projector using the Surface Pro 4, then use the pen to quickly ink in details. It also allows me to quickly add color, images, and videos to any lesson. This is beneficial to students as it makes the lesson less abstract and makes my class time with them much more efficient. In addition to this, I am also able to demonstrate the TI-Nspire handheld calculator without being tethered to my desktop. I can move around from student to student more easily assisting them at their desks. With the Surface Pro I can bring my teaching to my students. I can save what we do in each class and share it on OneNote so students have the material from class to refer back later during homework or to review for an exam. This is a major asset to students who are absent.
