My Students

Our school is a Title 1, Community School that partners with many local businesses and organizations. In our classroom, we travel from one continent to another using creative methods. Students have made dioramas, posters, 3-D projects and used technology to visit places all over the world.

"I can't wait to travel the world!" That's the reaction students have when they come to my class.

My students are curious about exploring the world around them. I want to feed their excitement and expose them to as much as possible.

My Project

Technology is such an essential part of our world and I try to incorporate it into my lessons as much as possible. I want to be able to take my students outside and show them the world, but through a different lens.

Innovative lessons engage students and I want students to get excited about school, especially Geography.

With a video recording drone, my students can have that opportunity. It can be used to identify different land formations, plot points using maps and so much more. My favorite teachers in school were the ones that made learning fun. I hope that I can be that teacher.
