My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with multiple challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

They like to move, they love to read, and love lots of positive attention.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households, homeless and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

Most students have a hard time reading, writing and completing math. I want to create an environment where they can feel relaxed.

My Project

Organization is a key ingredient to have a successful class and year. As the year has progressed, my students and I are having a great time but I have noticed a few things. As we dig deeper into our learning, I have transferred more responsibilities to my students. In doing so, they have been invading my space to use my supplies and my computer to run their programs and lessons. For example, Kahoot it and Vocabulary Jam are two of their favorite. They like to start these games and learn with each other. So I am asking for an iPad and case so that they can do this.
