My Students

Student's at our school love to learn! They enjoy reading, but sometimes struggle to read on grade level. They are into sports and technology. We are a one to one school, so children are able to learn electronically. They enjoy researching and exploring apps.

Our school has a wonderful school-wide community.

We are like a family and everyone watches out for each other. It is not uncommon to see an older student helping a kindergartener tie their shoe in the hallway.

My Project

I need new professional texts to read over the summer to revamp my practice. Literacy Coaching: Transforming Teaching and Learning with Digital Tools and Technology by Stephanie Affinito will hopefully inspire me with new ideas to support other teachers. Since we are a MEDIA magnet school, I am hoping this book will give me new ways to incorporate technology into our English Language Arts instruction.

I need a wireless pointer to use during professional development sessions so that I can engage with teachers.

This will allow me to move around the room and interact with teachers as opposed to standing at the front near the projector.
