My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and inquisitive! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and technology! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to persevere!

My students are hard-working, independent learners who are eager to explore and grow.

As a part of a blended learning initiative, working independently is an expectation for success in the classroom. They are fearless when it comes to technology and, as children of the 21st-century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to engage their world.

My Project

We are a part of a blended learning pilot within our school district that emphasizes personalized instruction. There are many programs that allow us to do that through the use of iPads in the classroom. Our students are blessed with technology in our classroom. Although some of it is dated, we need to take care of what we have. I am requesting twelve ipad cases.

We are a technology driven classroom with a desire to grow and learn all that we can.

However, we are five and six year olds and we tend to be a little rough on our things. These cases will assist us in assuring that our technology is well taken care of.
