My Students

My students are fun, inspired, and are ready to learn in engaging ways. I want my classroom to match my student’s energy for learning by having the resources needed for success in school and life.

I want my students to have the means and tools to flourish in all areas of curriculum.

My students come from many backgrounds and are economically challenged. Our school is a Title 1 school and our students struggle on a daily basis with basic needs. I don’t want this to be a reason that they can’t be engaged and have success.

My Project

My students will use the laptops for research and literacy stations to increase their reading and writing skills. As of right now, my classroom currently has two student computers and I would like my students to work in groups of three to five.

With the ease of the five laptops, my students will have the opportunity to have an open door to the online portion of our new literacy classroom curriculum.

Also, my students’ needs will be met by feeding their energetic and curious minds. They will be building experiences and background knowledge using the computers for research in writing projects.
