My Students

A typical day in my class ranges from entering various science competitions to virtual labs and hands-on projects. We do a lot of cross discipline activities in the computer lab and in the science laboratory. There is varied excitement and noise due to curiosity and learning of new concepts.

My school is in a rural community.

It feels like an extended family. My children love to talk and be challenged with ideas and technology. They are willing to meet each challenge that I give. We are in a high poverty area, but rich in curiosity and love for education. They enjoy working together. These students have overcome many obstacles to get an education. Despite what they don't have, they keep on giving and trying.

My Project

My students need a set of five iPads to work on the use of STEAM initiatives. Our hope is to create infographics on environmental and engineering practices. Students usually work in groups of 2-4 to do various videos. We would like to start a STEM club at our school. We are exploring different educational opportunities through youtube and multimedia. Each month we search the internet to see what types of contests that we may enter that involves at least three disciplines. We will use these iPads to do tutorials to assist with state standardized tests and work keys initiatives. I would like to focus on literacy in science.

My students need exposure to technology and various reading programs.

This will make my class an interactive work environment. My classroom will be interconnected with all areas of the curriculum offered in my school. My students will be changed because they will experience why it is necessary to be proficient in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. This will help prepare them for the future.
