My Students

My students are amazing, hardworking children who are eager to learn each and everyday. They learn best through hands-on activities and real life applications, which is what the science content calls for. Students work with one another to put the scientific method to the test with different experiments. My school is a very diverse school culturally. We encourage all students to feel welcome in our classrooms. Please help me create a wonderful learning environment for my students where they can thrive and become scientists!

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students learning because with a broken smart board they are unable to hear in the back of the room through the laptop speaker. This soundbar will allow the sound to be amplified so all students can hear the information presented regardless of where they are seated in the classroom. There are many educational videos that I would love to show the students for a do now, activity etc. Also, the Elmo visual presenter will allow me to show students where mistakes have been made in certain writing pieces to the whole class at once instead of individually.
