My Students

My third graders are very inquisitive learners, thinkers and gathers of information. I enjoy their enthusiasm in the classroom and their daily work ethic and approach to learning. They embrace learning in a traditional manner and are especially, in a more modern format, engaged learners.

Everyday my students attend school ready for new learning experiences and an increase in knowledge.

My students attend school in an urban district in a classroom where all subjects are taught in an integrated STEM environment.

My Project

Being part of a large school district, some students can become or feel distant when in their classroom. I try each school day to assure that my students do not "get lost" while learning. So, last school year I implemented the PowerMyLearning Family Engagement Innovators Program and I want to give this year's students and families the same rich extended experiences.

Students and their families who've used the PowerMyLearning Family Engagement Innovators Program shared how connected they felt "to the skills used and in understanding what their child [my student] was learning on a daily basis".

The PowerMyLearning Family Engagement Innovators Program allows students to extend their learning at home with family members, using the Internet on any device. Students learn a concept/skill, teach it to a family member and together they respond to prompts and questions. The information is electronically shared with me and I can use the data, comments and other results to guide classroom and homework instruction.

We appreciate your support!
