My Students

I work at a Title I school where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Being in a small, rural town home to a prison, our students all have difficult obstacles to overcome in order to be successful academically and personally.

My 4th graders - despite difficult circumstances in their lives - are vibrant, curious, creative, and bring such a joy to all around them.

They come to school so full of life. We work hard together as our classroom family unit in order to ask deep questions, answer difficult inquiries, and to be good leaders in our school and community.

My Project

Working with students who have extreme behaviors, challenges me to come up with innovative ways to teach my curriculum and core contents. Glow projects involve teaching a core subject while using UV/blacklights.

My project will allow my students to delve in more readily to engaging and challenging materials.

For example in writing, ALL students get excited by using UV pens to create secret messages or essays to be exposed only during GLOW time under UV flashlights. In reading, students can go through different stations for word work (solving in UV pens), matching vocabulary words (using UV tape on cards), or solving worksheets written in UV pen using UV flashlights. In math, students are motivated to try solving puzzles and word problems like detectives using only UV lights and UV flashlights to find and solve their work. For STEM, students could use UV tape to create puzzles, build structures, or make mazes.

All projects can still be differentiated, but glow time allows a new, exciting element so students are more willing to try things they normally wouldn't. It fosters independence and encourages perseverance in tasks.
