My Students

My students are young, eager and ready to learn. Most of them come from very low income households and lack the supplies and resources needed to discover and research. They are constantly thanking me when I incorporate any type of technology or tool that I can afford to enhance learning. I would love for them to have the opportunity to use every tool possible in order to receive the education they deserve. They love to research and discover information as "independent" young minds (one of their vocabulary words). I can't wait for our next educational adventure!

My Project

Having current, useful technology in the classroom would be an absolute delight for my students. Many of them never have access to any kind of technology in their home. Giving them the chance to discover reading, mathematics and phonics through technology, will prepare them for the technological age. The excitement that they will experience and the knowledge they will gain while being able to research various subjects is priceless. They will be able to utilize office 365 and various programs with ease in the classroom and will have access to hundreds of learning opportunities. Providing the tech tools that they need with tablets in our classroom is essential and I am looking forward to everything we will be able to accomplish!
