My Students

The students I serve are much more than the stigma of a school district that is nestled in, what was only a few years back, recognized as the poorest small city in the country. Many are from bilingual, low-income families, some of whom have recently relocated to the United States. Although I serve a financially disadvantaged community, with 97% of our school's population living in poverty, it saddens me that my students are provided with resources that pale in comparison to more affluent neighboring school districts.

Similar to any individual in their age group, my students are inherently curious and creative individuals, who each have a unique perspective on the way the world works.

An important part of my time with my students is helping them to realize how wonderful their perspectives are, and offering each of them opportunities to shine!

My Project

Our school recently brought Chromebooks onto the educational scene which has opened up a whole new playing field for my students.

With the use of a green screen and a lapel microphone, it will allow my students to create educational videos which relay the story of their academic journey in science class.

With the creation of these videos, we will open up learning opportunities for students both in and out of school which will also help students who are absent from school. What an amazing opportunity for my students to be accountable for their learning as well as having fun creating dynamic videos.
