My Students

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela

I teach a rockstar group of fifth graders who are eager and motivated learners.

My students come from all areas of town, mostly from an urban setting. I want my classroom to be a place where they can comfortably learn in a safe and exciting environment. This group is extremely diverse in their special learning needs and abilities. Together, as a class, we strive to work together as a team and become the best we can possibly be.

My Project

Everybody loves a good story... whether it's a novel, picture book, or even just a friend telling you one. Why does it have to stop at just that? What about telling a story of Science? At the end of each unit my students are asked to complete a culminating project of everything they have learned. Many of my students choose to do this by writing stories or songs.

My students love to write narrative stories or songs depicting themselves as an important part of Science.

Whether it's writing from the perspective of a sound wave as it travels through our classroom or singing as if they are the full moon way up in the sky, storytelling in Science is fun and engaging for all students! Students are able to take an informational topic and bring it to life all while showing their knowledge and comprehension.

My students have so much fun composing their stories and songs, but don't all have the technology to publish their work. After spending time drafting, revising and editing their stories and songs they deserve the technology to finalize their work. The Chromebooks would be a great way for them to do just that. The addition of five new Chromebooks to our classroom will continue to allow my students to storytell their way through Science.
