My Students

As a teacher in a low-income school with many students having little to no support academically at home. The students face many challenges such as language barriers and economic barriers. I want my students to succeed in life and, therefore, I strive to get all the materials needed that my students will need in the classroom setting.

My students face disadvantages in their daily lives they shouldn't have to face them in the school.

The school serves students who are economically disadvantaged, with over 50% qualifying for free or reduced lunch. I would like to spark enthusiasm for learning about computers, math, and science and encourage them into careers that otherwise most wouldn't even get a chance to talk about. At times classroom activities are the only exposure they get as they wouldn't see it in their daily lives.

My Project

Having technology in the classroom will allow me to do small group instruction while students work on individual projects for science or work on their math proficiency.

Having updated/working Technology in the classroom will help students learn and increase their engagement in the classroom.

Students will be able to select their own type of project to create in science such as a digital brochure, posters, website or an essay. We also use google classroom, where students can submit work through the website. Work individually at their own pace in math with programs such as DreamBox and teacher prepared lessons online.
