My Students

My fantastic first graders live in an urban community where they receive free breakfast, as well as free lunches. Many of the students do not have electricity, air/heat in their homes, yet they still come to school daily with the biggest smiles on their faces

I try and make our classroom, cozy, comfortable, and a safe learning environment.

My first graders come in the classroom every morning with smiles on their faces, eager to give me a hug or high five as they walk in the classroom ready to learn.

My Project

The document camera will project onto the large screen in the classroom. I will be able to show students step by step math problems where they can see everything I am doing. Students will be able to come up and show us how they solved the math problem, or other lessons that are being taught. A

document camera will allow all students to see all lessons.

The camera does not have a glare when the sun comes into the windows, and the students can see the entire board. This will help students to gain a better understanding of what is being taught, and for students to get that chance to come up and share their problem solving skills to the class.
