My Students

Do you remember your first day of school? The worry about riding the bus, making new friends, meeting your teacher for the first time?

My students are eager learners who are excited and ready to continue their education after a long summer.

They're a multicultural group of 7 and 8 years olds who have faced the challenge of physical and social distancing with their child-view acceptance of a strange new way of interacting with their community. While these children have some familiarity with game apps, the children and their parents(co-teachers) have had to face the challenge of navigating the world of new learning platforms and apps as dictated by their school district for remote learning.

My students are curious mathematicians, with a keen enthusiasm for reading books of all genres.

Who remembers overhead projectors and chalkboards? As times change so does the classroom technology to demonstrate and practice new learning skills. My students use the technology everyday to remotely communicate, study new lessons, practice their learning and demonstrate their understanding.

The students enjoy the journey of learning!

My Project

The right technology at the right time makes a world of difference. Where would we be without microphones in a large room or a the whiteboard to communicate and demonstrate concepts and ideas?

A document camera is the live virtual whiteboard for my community of remote learners.

We will be using technology to bring us closer together as we share ideas about books we are reading, ways we solve problems with math and communicate our ideas with the written word. My students learn best when we visually examine new concepts presented and converse about what it uncovers. The document camera is a necessity during remote learning to bolster clarity and engagement for all my students.
