My Students

I teach in a public World Language Magnet School, which means my students come from every corner of the city. Our student body is richly diverse with many cultures, languages, and ethnicities represented. Though they come from neighborhoods near and far, the students work well together to form a strong and supportive learning environment.

With all of their differences, my students have one thing that unites them together: learning Italian.

Our school’s curriculum is heavily centered on World Language learning. Just as our homeroom classrooms utilize and take advantage of technology, so does the world language class. It is crucial that my students have this technology so they can better access, learn, and use Italian!

My Project

Technology is our future, and it is becoming more and more involved in our daily lives. Technology is only increasing in the world around us. It’s is our duty as teachers to make sure our students are educated in a way that prepares them to live in the world. Technology is such a huge part of our lives. Not including it in education would be a disservice to students.

In order for my students be successful, they need to have the proper technological materials in the classroom.

Having Chromebooks in the classroom will provide my students with better tools to access and learn the language, and in turn interact with it. The use of technology brings learning alive with various ways of exploring and discovering new things. My students will have more access to audio and videos in Italian, and will be able to hone their speaking and writing skills with greater ease.
