My Students

I am the Digital Learning Specialist at a Title I public school in rural Eastern North Carolina. I serve over 500 students at my elementary school, kindergarten through 5th grade, and teach students in whole class settings as well and small group settings. When I'm working with students, I constantly remind students that they should SOAR with pride by being successful, original, accountable, and respectful.

I always encourage students to explore during the learning process, discuss their findings, and record their thoughts.

I try very hard to give the students that I'm working with immediate feedback on their thinking. Many of the lessons that I write encompass hands on learning due to many of my students living in poverty.

With your support, I would be able to use a whiteboard table with students when working in small groups. The table would allow them to record their findings and support their thinking. It would also help me give immediate feedback to students to help differentiate and guide their learning.

My Project

By using the whiteboard table, markers, and erasers while working with the students, I will be able to see exactly what students are thinking and if they are able to understand and master objectives that have been taught to them. This will range from students planning out a script to their iMovie that they are going to create, to 1st graders writing rhyming words, to 4th grade students working out multistep equations.

By donating to this project, you will not only help improve student engagement, you will also help with academic achievement.

Students in kindergarten through 5th grade will also be able to share their work with not only me but with their peers by using the whiteboard table and supplies. This will help boost their self esteem as well as their desire to learn!
