My Students

As the school's Instructional Technology teacher I am able to push-in and pull-out to support the teachers and students with remediation and extensions of contents with the use of technology. This year, I get to work with seventy-nine Kindergarteners, ninety first graders, ninety-one second graders, seventy-one third graders, sixty-six fourth graders, and seventy-four fifth graders. These one hundred girls and one hundred eleven boys are a mixed ability bunch, some with gifted, special needs identification, and some labeled ESL. The students come from diverse households that range from low income to middle class.

The school I teach in is a Title I public elementary school that has socio-economical and multicultural diversity.

Eighty percent of our population receives free or reduced-price lunch. Our school has a large population of special needs students, including SECEP and severe and profound disabilities.

The students I see are always ready to learn when the material is presented in an exciting way. My students are visual and kinesthetic learners. They need to see and touch the things they are learning in order for concepts to become concrete. They are a technologically aware generation and want to use many electronic learning devices aside from school computers.

My Project

I need a shed for my students to store their outdoor equipment . We have tricycles, Little Tyke cars, wagons, balls, jump ropes, etc.

Working on gross motor skills helps my Pre- Kindergarten children gain strength and confidence in their body.

It also helps them get exercise and physical activity, which is important for a healthy lifestyle. Developing these skills helps a child ability to do more complex skills in future activities such as playing soccer, baseball and football, to mention a few.

Gross motor skills are important to enable children to perform everyday functions, such as walking, running, as well as, climbing, catching, throwing and hitting a ball with a bat.

I really need a shed to keep our Pre-Kindergarten equipment we have safe and dry so my students can have excess to them on a daily basis.
