My Students

I work at a Title 1 school in Deltona, Florida. Our school currently is at 83% free and reduced lunch. I have a wide variety of students ranging from those who have Individualized Education Plans and difficult backgrounds. My students come daily with different challenges, but are always willing to learn. My class is made of a different variety of fun, loving and eager to learn individuals. They love working collaboratively in the classroom, sharing ideas and helping each other learn.

My Project

I am a teacher in a Title 1, low-income, school. Many of my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. For many, school and my classroom are their only constant. From the moment my students walk in my door, I help them learn to believe in themselves! My goal is to always help them be the best THEY can be! My students are amazing! I feel I learn just as much from them as they do from me!

Despite their many challenges my students love to learn!

I am looking to have enough technology in my classroom that we will be at a 3:1 ratio. By having a 3:1 IPAD ratio I hope to help keep my students fully engaged and take their learning far beyond the classroom!
