My Students

Students in my class are challenged to become the learners they are capable of becoming. They are challenged to become active explorers of the world around them. We work on becoming a community of learners, growing together and encouraging one another.

When I describe my school the first thing that I describe is the wonderful community of teachers, parents, and students working together to help students become the best that they can be.

Students in our school are involved in many activities that promote socially aware behavior. They are involved in what we call PRIDE fundraisers and activities that help people in the community, bay area cities and schools, as well as communities around the world. They have helped children regain their smiles, put food on the tables of the hungry, and even raised money to build wells in Africa, bringing drinking water to communities in need. Our students are eager to learn about and explore the world around them. They are learning what it means to be socially aware and productive citizens of our community and the world.

My Project

Students in my classroom will use Chromebooks for every aspect of the curriculum. They will utilize sites for research, presentation, word processing, and curriculum extension. Students will work on research, write essays, and collaborate on projects and presentations, sharing ideas and input resulting in oral presentations that put them in the teaching role to their peers.

Students' learning has such enthusiasm when they have access to technology like Chromebooks.

All students become empowered to do their best. All students are able to produce clean, neat, and organized work. Work is presented professionally and students gain a sense of pride in the results of their efforts. It is important for students to have the ability to succeed. These tools will enable all students to succeed. These Chromebooks will empower my students.
