My Students

My students and I are from Victoria, Texas. We are a Title I school, where 85% of our students are on free or reduced price lunch. The majority of my students come from low-income households.

My students still face severe challenges at home, as well as in their community, with the effects of Hurricane Harvey still being felt.

My students come to school to learn and be loved. We are a family and treat each other with respect! I work hard to build a class culture that values growth in education.

My Project

My students enjoy reviewing concepts in new and exciting ways. It is important to spiral review throughout the year. Classroom buzzers are a great tool to get students engaged and excited.

Help my students review concepts learned with fun and engaging buzzers.

The Eggspert® buzzers will be used in multiple ways. We will use them whole group when tables will compete as teams to the be the first to answer questions. The buzzers will also be used as a table/student randomizer to call upon students and will also be great way to engage my students during Small Group Instruction time.
