My Students

I have twenty-five wonderful, energetic, and curious first-grade students. The students in my classroom speak a variety of languages, eight total. My school is 88% free or reduced price lunch, and that percentage is quickly rising. Forty-nine percent of the students at my school identify as Asian, 26% identify as African American, 14% identify as Hispanic, 10% identify as Caucasian, and 1% identify as American Indian.

My classroom is rich with diversity, and we celebrate each student's identity and culture.

My students are always moving. I use alternative seating, center-based learning, and differentiation to target the needs of all of my students.

In my school, the classrooms are co-taught and have a cluster of students who are just learning English or have special needs. I teach in a special education co-taught classroom. I am passionate about teaching to the needs of each of my students. I do not believe in a "cookie cutter" approach and often have each student working on something different at the same time which creates a need for more supplies.

My Project

The 21st century classroom is amazing! My school is very fortunate because we have an iPad for each student and each teacher has a computer and an iPad. A skill that I believe is crucial for students to learn is keyboarding and typing. I want them to learn how to type on their iPads but want to give them the opportunity to use keyboards as well. These keyboards would be used for small groups during our reading time so students can practice their spelling and typing.

21st Century learners need advanced technology to prepare them for success in the future.

We're also asking for a CD drive, wireless speakers, and charging cables. The CD drive is for the teacher to use to show different videos, video clips, and play music for students. My computer does not have one. The wireless speakers are so we can incorporate music into our learning! The charging cords are because we never seem to have enough and having longer ones will give kids more access to use them wherever they are in the room.
