My Students

My scholars are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Many students in my classroom come in saying they have difficulty completing practice assignments at home because of lack of supplies and resources.

We are located in a rural area with a poverty level of 44% and many looming just above the line, helping classify my school as Title 1.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best varies greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a group of learners that are excited about school.

My Project

Being in a rural and underfunded county, it can be difficult to keep up with the standards that are set when the resources are scarce. With a world that has been and will continue to be immensely changed by technology, how are we preparing our students for the workforce if we do not give them the experience they need when many jobs, as we know it, will be outsourced to technology?

Providing my students with tablets will not only give them the opportunity to use scholastic applications and resources to enhance and showcase their knowledge, but it will also get them accustomed to and prepared for the technological world that awaits them.

I teach around 90 kids split up into 6 classes each day. My hope and plan for my class is that each day I can incorporate a new technological component that will excite and challenge my students in a way that is difficult, if not impossible to achieve with pencil and paper. I teach multi-level groups of learners, ranging from honors to inclusion. Each one brings light to my classroom with a head ready to learn and heart ready to love. However, with some of my students, reading and math levels are at the 1st and 2nd grade level, causing them to be up to 7 years behind.

Some examples of applications that I plan on using are Study Island, Reading Eggs, News ELA, Khan Academy, and e-books. We do not have textbooks or many other key literature pieces that would benefit literacy across all subjects. With these tablets, I can expose them to reading resources that we would otherwise not have because of the price of hardbound books and texts.
