My Students

My students are fun, energetic, and loving students. They have an amazing outlook on life and are eager to learn each day. Our student population is a wide range of backgrounds with a large population of military students.

My students are inquisitive and have a true hunger for knowledge.

I constantly find myself looking for ways to challenge my students based on each individual needs and leaning styles of each and every student. I feel my students will strive to have technology at their fingertips.

My Project

Our school is located in a rural part of North Carolina. We are currently dealing with budget cuts that has affected our students as well as staff. Our school does not have the money to update our current technology that is in place and our students are facing daily technological issues.

A class Chromebook would allow students to have access to live changing technology at their fingertips.

Students would be able to experience learning games, creative projects, testing inquiries, as well as becoming technological experts while becoming 21st-century learners. The Chromebook would give technology opportunities to my students who do not have access to technology at home. This technology advancement would help to bridge the technological gap that my class is currently facing.
