My Students

One of my favorite quotes is "the greatest gift is a passion for reading," spoken by Elizabeth Hardwick. Every day, the students I work with struggle with reading and find reading tedious, but with the right support and resources, I truly believe they will reach their goal of being life long readers and learners.

My 60 students are hard-working and persevere even when learning is difficult for them.

I have the joy of reaching different learners- I teach second grade part of the school day and reading intervention the rest of the day. Intervention group sizes vary from 2 to 16 and are grouped by need. Over half of them are English learners or have limited vocabularies and language. When walking into my Title One classroom, you would discover risk-takers performing in a safe environment where they are not afraid to play with language.

Our school has a supportive RTI team striving hard to identify student needs and pinpoint with ever-increasingly accuracy which intervention is right for the student. Due to the “can do” attitude of my students, I truly believe every child will reach their goal of being life-long readers.

My Project

The SMART Board will allow my students to interact with the curriculum in a whole new way. Our school is going to one-to-one devices and the SMART Board will increase the opportunities for learning.

To increase student collaboration, a SMART Board will allow students to immediately share their work with their peers.

I can create interactive games targeting skills for students to review in an engaging format. With the requested pens, students will be able to identify phonemes and phonics skills during reading intervention. For group projects, a SMART Board will keep every student held accountable via the timeline app. The SMART Board will also boost confidence of students by providing a different method of communicating their learning.

The SMART Board Exchange will also allow me to collaborate with other teachers world wide to build even better lessons for my students.
