My Students

Our students are a full spectrum with a diverse campus in race, culture, socioeconomic status and interests. Our campus serves approximately 635 students, grades 7th thru 8th and between the ages of 12 to 14. Ethnically our students are approximately 87% minorities with 45% being Latin American, 26% African American, and 13% Asian and Pacific Islander. 25% of our students are currently an English Language Learner.

At Bret Harte, we have 10% of our population receiving services from our Special Education department.

We have students coming from all over the district including many who are also English language learners. Our students come from a variety of cultures and socio-economic levels which means that most students have limited access to technology at home. But we try to provide a full STEAM education for our students.

My Project

Working with small groups is essential for special education students to fully understand a lesson. This means I am constantly doing small group instruction. Having a portable computer makes working with these small groups so much more engaging for the students. We are working hard to help all students keep engaged and intrigued by their own education.

Creating engaging lessons is essential to student buy-in and technology help make the lessons come alive.

From having the students look up the stock market when teaching financial literacy to look up for solar oven work this will help lessons come alive. So many of our students are visual learners which is why it is so important to have access to visual images on computers.
