My Students

I am a teacher for the San Francisco Unified School District where I have taught third grade for the past twenty-two years. I work at an urban school with a varied population, both racially as well as socioeconomically. Our school population represents students of global cultures and backgrounds. Additionally, our school follows an inclusion model. This means a handful of students in class are not performing at grade level and therefore, need supplementary materials. On the average, one half to one third of my class qualifies for free or reduced price lunch.

My Project

Technology is a major vehicle in the learning process in the classroom these days. Many of my lessons are taught via Apple t.v. and projected onto a screen. Unfortunately, our present sound system is not great, its volume is capped and the sound that the speakers are able to project is poor due to the horrible feedback and rattling of the unit.

Our low grade speaker system impacts how often I use technology inclusive of sound.

New high functioning speakers will allow my students to participate and enjoy various types of educational materials that can be found on the internet. An example of this would be narrated documentaries eg. The Great Quake Of 1906. Students will also be able to benefit from theater and dance performances that tie into our curriculum and read alouds.
