My Students

My students are amazing! They inspire me with their work ethic and determination. They excel when they are challenged with creative activities and exciting workshops. The classroom conversations that they have are rich in imagination and creativity.

We are in a Title I district, but our school does not qualify for Title I funds.

This makes it difficult to acquire classroom resources. I aspire to help students reach their full potential and challenge them to expand their potential. They can do anything that they set their minds to.

My Project

The toner is import for students to be able to print in the classroom. Students will be able to print drafts of their essays without having to go to the library, or worrying about resources. They will be more productive and I project that grades will go up removing the barrier to complete their assignments.

All students have tablets, but it is a challenge to do all of the editing on the screen.

The ability to print and allow students to edit will be especially beneficial for my English intervention students. Highlighting and underlining on paper can help them improve their writing.

The sensory items will assist my special needs students focus and complete assignments and projects. Sensory toys are wonderful for students that fidget with their pens or drum on desks. The visual timer will help all students with time management on their assignments. The visual component is especially helpful for my students with special needs.
