My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Some of the challenges they face may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. I strive to do this in a creative and positive way and am hopeful to inspire even my earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

My children will greatly benefit from technology in the classroom that they usually have minimal access to. The Kindle Fires will allow students access to Raz-Kids which supplies endless books on all reading levels. With headphones, they can read independently and not disturb others around them. Having the tablets in the classroom will open up so many opportunities for my classroom and for the children to engage in age-appropriate learning activities. They will come to expect the reliability that having technology at their fingertips will offer and will see an improvement in their own skills. Self esteem will be improved and lead to more motivation because of this.
