My Students

My classroom is filled with wonderfully amazing students who I learn from daily. While our school is in a low-income area and also a Title I school, students come in daily ready to learn and with smiles on their faces.

I highly promote a classroom community that is more like a family!

We share ideas, engage in group activities, share stories and work in small groups. We have a class name that is more like a team name. This sense of family and community help my students know that they are loved and each valuable members of our team.

Many of the students within the school receive free or reduced rate lunch. While the family incomes are low, I have been lucky enough to have tons of parent involvement. They attend classroom events and functions to include; Moms and Muffins, Dads and Donuts, Math Night, Reading Night, Trunk or Treat and other events that both the school hosts and I myself host. However, due to the community dynamic parents struggle with providing students with extra materials.

My goal is achieved if my students are eager to come to school daily and learning is made to be fun and engaging.

My Project

My students need access to technology at their disposal for use in science, math, and ELA. They will be better able to create projects, do online research and complete units of study in ways they have not been able to in the past.

Our classroom goal is to eventually have a Chromebook for each student to do individualized tasks without the need to share devices, thus completing tasks at their own level and pace.

This includes science and inquiry based assignments that parallel our reading curriculum and writing projects that can be typed and published at the end of each unit.
