My Students

Our school is a wonderful neighborhood elementary school with teachers and students who truly care about each other and are excited to try new and exciting things.

Our fifth graders love technology and researching topics they are interested in.

This group of 10 and 11-year-old students have gone above and beyond, connecting with history and reading on a deep level. Students come to school excited to learn each day and are full of curiosity and questions. I can't wait to provide them with more ways to access and share information.

My Project

My students will use the Chromebooks to research, reflect and design. Students are motivated, challenged and engaged by technology when covering information that typically was introduced by a text book. New standards require students compare information about a topic from various sources and the internet is a natural fit for this.

65 percent of today’s schoolchildren will eventually be employed in jobs that have yet to be created, according to the US Department of Labor report.

I am dedicated to preparing my fifth graders to take risks, think outside of the box and collaborate while learning. Student centered learning needs technology to help with differentiation and enrichment.
