My Students

My goal is to create independent learners, who are creative problem solvers, and are ready to tackle a challenge no matter how difficult it is.

We are an urban public elementary school with students from different cultural backgrounds and socioeconomic levels.

Fifty-five percent of our students are identified as English Language Learners. They come to school ready to learn, and are held to very high standards each day.

Our mission is to provide a challenging academic program that gives our students the means to meet high standards in order to excel with the best ability. We foster sound habits and healthy mind and body, and instill in them such virtues as integrity, respect, and self-discipline. We provide a nurturing environment and effective teaching methods that promote independent learning.

My Project

I have had a hand me down projector for the past five years and find that when we get to the juicy part the lesson, it overheats and shuts off! This causes a great disturbance in student learning. A new projector would guarantee uninterrupted learning and help to create a classroom environment where kids are excited to learn.

We hope to use this new projector and the Apple TV to help teach fun and exciting lessons as well as display student work.

We currently have three IPads. Students use it for word work, digital literacy, and more. With an Apple TV, students can directly project their work with an IPad.

These new technologies can enhance student learning in the classroom and help students become more technologically savvy at the same time.
