My Students

Our school/classroom focuses on knowing the whole learner. Not only do I know my students' academic progress- but I also know their heart (the best part). Each of my 24 gifted students are kind, compassionate, and hard working students. They work every day to better themselves as individuals and learners.

Of my 24 students, four are english learners, one receives resource services, fives attend class with a school intervention specialist, three are in speech and one has a serious health concern (diabetes).

They make going to school and learning along side of them amazing each and every day.

My Project

Chromebooks allow my students learning to grow! In our class we use chromebooks everyday. However- we do not have enough for all students. These two chromeboks would get us THAT MUCH closer to a one-on-one device ratio. My students are motived through devices. As third graders (8 year olds) my students are doing AMAZING things on devices: learning, explaining, creating, teaching, growing, and excelling. Two more chromebooks would allow us to complete even more outstanding projects. I can't wait to watch their learning soar!

As for the flexible seating... my students not only thrive on devices but they also thrive on choice.

Simply allowing them a cozy, comfortable, desirable place to sit and learn creates possibilities! After all, I wish for my classroom to be my students' home away from home. Wouldn't you want your home to be comfy? I sure do!
