My Students

I teach a group of 27 very diverse students on a military installation. These students are the children of service members who transfer from duty station to duty station. They spend on average of two to three years at a location then move on as the Department of Defense directs. These students need additional support in secure stable environment that they can call their own for the time they are there.

A warm inviting environment geared for learning and promoting student success is our goal.

Everything we do in class is focused on meeting students individual needs while they are with us, academic as well as emotional. This is challenging in any classroom and even more in a class with students that transfer from school to school across not only the country but continents. As students move with their parents they come and go all throughout the year and when they come in we want them to see the classroom and their new fellow students and want to be there and work towards that success.

My Project

Technology, through the use of chromebooks, is necessary to meet expectations as they advance and prepare for middle and high school. My students use programs like Lexia, Math Whizz, Khan Academy, and Raz Kids to practice and advance their skills in math and reading. Unfortunately, in our school we are limited on the number of available tablets to allow students to work to their full potential. For example, in writing, we are writing more and more on paper yet what they need is practice with keyboarding and typing out their stories to be prepared for middle and high school expectations.
