My Students

My students are the reason I love to go to school every day! The middle school years are an adventure! They can be challenging, awkward, fabulous and crazy!

My students are talented in academics as well as extracurricular activities and have some of the best personalities I know!

They have me laughing every day! They are talented in so many ways besides academics and I feel blessed to be a part of three of the most important years of their life!

My Project

These Chromebooks will allow my students to enhance their learning daily in this digital age!

My students will be able to collaborate with others, learn at their own pace, and allow me to individualize their learning while enjoying the process.

When you have 150 students, meeting all of their needs can be challenging. However, having these Chromebooks will allow me to plan so much more for them so they feel successful!

The Chromebooks will also allow me to use Google Classroom, on-line resources, Google Earth, Discovery Education, and a variety of other resources to keep my students engaged while learning.
