My Students

My students are engaged and excited learners who are ready for their 1st grade year! My students are very diverse with many different cultural and language background. They are kind, smart and always ready to celebrate small and big wins within our classroom community.

My students are engaged, enthusiastic, energetic learners who are always ready to share new information that they have learned.

They are active in their learning and love teaching each other new things. We've had so much fun exploring 1st grade.

My Project

We are very fortunate to have been gifted 22 iPads to use as a reading, writing, math, and learning resource. We use the iPads weekly on different learning programs as well as using it as a research tool, learning code and building projects. It's very important for our students to have the knowledge and experience with technology starting at a young age. My students especially loved using their iPads to research animals to write and teach others about. We want to be able to keep these iPads safe from falls and drops so we can continue learning from this technology year after year.
