My Students

Our classroom consists of 18 amazing students each with their own unique talents, interests, and abilities. Each and every day we tackle learning as another opportunity to show the world the difference we can make and the challenges we can overcome.

Our class mission is to have fun, be kind to others, grow and learn.

We do this by playing educational games, participating in activities and doing our all time best. Each of my students has the desire to learn and to improve themeselves each and every day!

My Project

The Qball throwable speaker will be an amazing tool to use in the classroom. This will give students the confidence to participate and share their voice with others. There are many times in class when students have difficulties hearing their peers during discussion. This tool will benefit any student hard of hearing or it will assist those students who do not speak loudly or clearly enough for others to hear.

I am excited to use the Qball speaker during whole group discussions, outdoor lessons and even schoolwide assemblies.

Students will also be able to benefit from practicing their reading fluency with others while using the ball. The possibilities are endless!
