My Students

This year I have a class of EIP students. An EIP class is a class of students that are identified as being at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level. It is my goal to provide the best resources to assist my students to reach grade level.

While educating the mind of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.

- Dalai Lama

My students are creative, active and inquisitive in nature. They are boys and girls from communities that are underprivileged and lacking in basic resources that are required to help them succeed. Although, their resources are limited they are still passionate and driven to learn.

Caring, passionate, considerate, achievers, believers, principled, active, knowledgeable, engaging, motivated, third graders!!

My Project

In our 21st Century environment, technology is a vital resource in the classroom. Technology is used on an every day basis to support the learning needs of our students. We have the right amount of technology, however we are lacking headphones that are required when using technology. The headphones will eliminate outside noises and distractions by allowing the students to concentrate on the task that's presented in front of them.

Integrating technology into the classroom is an effective way to connect with students of all learning styles.

Help me help our future leaders of society, by providing them with the tools they need to succeed!!
