My Students

Many things have changed the last couple of years with Covid and school. The student's education, however, needs to be consistent. My kids come from a low socio-economic background and many do not have consistency at home. I want my class to be a safe place they want to be in and also to thrive.

I want to be able to have a fun and engaging curriculum for the kids.

Social Studies can be such a wonderful subject to teach to students who would not otherwise get to see and experience things around the country and/or world.

Almost 70% of my students are on free and reduced lunches/breakfast. Many of these kids have not been out of Oklahoma, or even out of the town we live in.

My Project

Since Covid, we aren't allowed to do field trips. Many of my kids aren't able to travel other places because of financial reasons. I want to be able to teach about these things and then have the kids see and experience them to help concrete them in their minds.

Having a VR set would allow students to experiences other places as well as learn about these places.

Many things have changed throughout the past couple of years and I think having these hands on experiences would help keep interest in what they are learning.

My hope is that the kids are excited to come to my classroom and learn a fun environment. They will be learning without knowing they are learning!
