My Students

Mary Lou Cook stated "Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risk, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun". My Software Application students are risk-takers that love experimenting with 21st century tools.

My diverse classes consist of 6th-8th grade students that have a variety of skill levels.

They are extremely creative and innovative.

In my classroom, we strive to create a learning environment that encourages students to dream the impossible and have an open mind for personal growth with a global perspective. I strive to empower my students with tools that will allow them to develop their talents and technology skills to use in all content areas and real life applications. I want them to know they can do anything they want and imagine.

My Project

My goal is to create an immersive and inclusive technology experience that will inspire lifelong learning, stimulating development of essential life skills, and develop my student passions.

I want to give my students an opportunity to create and share in an innovative way, to learn through exploration, as well as provide a tool that they can design, invent and build with.

My students can use the pen to highlight and annotate digital textbooks and on web pages on Edge. The Surface in my classroom will also help me prepare my students with 21st century skills that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Sway, Skype, and OneDrive. The Surface will also help enhance my student’s reading and writing experiences with built-in assistive technologies, such as Narrator and Magnifier, for my students that need larger text or images.
