This is a low income, high poverty school. I will be teaching about 75 students total. These are amazing kids who - many due to unfortunate circumstances - will not have many opportunities. A lot of them may have negative feelings about school we want to change. My goal as their Science teacher is to open up their world, engage them and give them a love for science though hands-on experiences and showing them to take pride in their work.
Who knows where their futures may go if the right foundation is set!
I want to ignite a love for learning!
The students that we are encountering are requiring more engagement and more opportunities to learn. We as teachers are constantly having to keep up with times and various learning styles. Quite a few of my students don't have access to technology at home and this will help expose and educate them.
They need this technology!
The students will be able to use some cool Science programs on this tablet that will hit all topics from Space, the Human Body to Animal adaptations! The students will also be able to use these tablets to create presentations. This will provide opportunities for them to practice public speaking and just using technology but using it effectively.
