My Students

My classroom is made up of students that are eager to learn, collaborate, grow, and EXPLORE! They come to school with the biggest smiles because they trust we will embark on a positive learning adventure that will enrich not only their academics but also the world around them.

My students are a part of a learning community that actively seeks ways to empower students to be world changers.

I want to provide my students with the resources that will give them the opportunities to explore learning in a way that changes their futures and inspires them to dream big!

My Project

Students use iPads daily in my classroom and we need Digital Pencils to help us make the most of our small group time. Students do the majority of their work on their iPads and with the use of a digital pencil important apps will be more usable. This will help me provide specific feedback as student work will be more legible.

Your donation will provide my students with the tools they need to thrive in a technology-driven world.

The use of Digital Pencils will help students be more precise when showing their work in math. Visual learners will also be able to use this tool to sketch notes that will help them solidify their learning.
