My Students

My students are extremely lively, inquisitive, and kind. They never fail to put a smile on my face as we start school each morning.

They are happy to be at school, ready to learn, and deserve more than our district can provide right now.

We are a Title I school in a large, urban district, which means that the vast majority of our students are socioeconomically challenged. Rather than hindering my students, however, it just seems to encourage my students to make the most of their education.

My Project

Having a document camera for students completely changes how a classroom functions. It creates a much more student centered and dynamic class. By putting a document camera to use in my classroom, every student gets the opportunity to have a front row seat!

No longer will the students at the back of the room squint to see what we're talking about in front of of the room.

Everything will be clearly projected on a large screen for everyone to see.

Students are also able to take on the role of a teacher/facilitator when they share their work. Students will get to engage students and lead discussions about their work with their classmates.
