Our school is known for assisting students who speak different languages and most of our English Learner students' living conditions should not be a deterrent to limit students an education. Every student regardless of their status should be welcomed and know that school is a safe haven where they can come to learn and develop life saving skills and friendships. All students are encouraged to begin their day with a warm smile and a positive attitude before getting started with our day. By greeting each student with a warm smile lets a student know that we are going to have a rewarding learning day.
I am a 4th grade teacher at a Title I school in Las Vegas where 100% of our students receive free breakfast, lunch, snack and most need to take a weekend backpack.
Despite some challenges and hardships, every students should begin their day by feeling loved and confident to learn and try their best. Students want to be recognized as individuals and know that education is key to have an opportunity so that they can be the first to attend college and/or trade school and be prepared to a face any challenge they encounter.
Having the set of chromebooks will allow for many different learning opportunities in my classroom. Students will look up information and pictures to build background of their projects. Another way they will be used is by utilizing the chromebooks to work on programs to assist them in getting ready for SBAC. Students will be able to type their information and record their findings with the various programs included.
One key component is being able to collaborate in groups and have the opportunity to share through google.
I could also download apps for various math practice skills for a math center, which would allow me to come up with activities for most struggling students.
