My Students

I live for the moment where a look of pure joy that crosses their faces that says, "I finally get it! It finally makes sense!" As students transition to middle school, they start exploring the world around them and realize that it truly has an impact on their lives. My students are engaging in literature, new styles of writing, ancient history, and computer science in ways that they haven't before.

My students haven't all come to learning naturally, but they are finding that learning cannot only be meaningful in their lives, but fun too.

I serve a population of 57% free/reduced lunch students, many who do not have access to the materials we supply them at school when they leave our doors. The supplies and tools that we use in my classroom should be available to all students, regardless of their socioeconomic status.

My Project

If you're a teacher in the 21st-century (or you know a teacher in the 21st century), you know that it is becoming more and more important that students have digital skills. Gone are the classes that only teach typing; here to stay are the classes that teach students to be knowledgeable consumers of information.

But there's one problem: we don't have access to these tools.

It can take weeks to book technology that we need in our rooms, and if a student needs extra time to work, well... "best of luck, hopefully, you can get into the library during lunch." Many of my students don't have computers at home and ask if they can use friends' phones to finish incomplete internet-based work. I'm not sure about you, but I'm not satisfied with this.

I want to purchase five tablets for my classroom. These have capabilities of running everything my students need: our online textbook; our self-paced, differentiated math and ELA tutoring program; and the G Suite for Education tools, including space where I ask students to submit work online. I also want to start building virtual field trip circles in social studies that would allow students to see places in VR that they may never get to see otherwise. I want to provide students with opportunities while they are in my room, and I invite you to be a part of our learning community by helping in this process.
