My Students

My students are from different parts of the Tampa Bay area. They are a diverse set of students. Most are energetic, creative, and eager-to-learn. Every day they arrive before most people are even in the car on the way to work. They love working with partners and in groups. I want my classroom to enable them to be ready for the real world.

Some students have been diagnosed with ADHD and other learning disabilities.

I want to make sure all students have supports to help them achieve the very best.

Students will often tell me that the classroom is different and is the only classroom they wish they could stay in all day.

Students are happy with their school and teachers. Each day they learn something new and come back the next day ready to learn more.

My Project

I want my students to create their own content in the classroom for learning and teaching civics. I give students options to show their own learning and giving them access to equipment to make their production professional helps to instill authentic engagement.

Allow students to create so that learning becomes engaging and fun.

Students will use the microphone to plug directly into their own devices or computers at school to record professional sounding podcasts and more. Using the portable video booth students will be able to create videos using their voices without all the extra background noise that can sometimes ruin a student production.
