My Students

The Middle East, Southern and Eastern Asia, and Africa are the places my students "travel" to in their seventh grade Social Studies class. I love to watch them compare, contrast and wonder about the different cultures, religions, landforms, governments and customs of the countries and people we talk and learn about in class.

My students and school are amazing!

We are a Title I school in south Georgia. It is an eclectic group of students with different socioeconomic backgrounds and families. They are growing and learning everyday and I want to foster their curiosity to help expand their knowledge of the world. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs and teachers. They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long, successful careers.

My Project

This year I want to help immerse my students into the lives, culture and total environment of the places we read about in textbooks, but never get to see. Sure, I use technology and we see pictures and videos, but to allow my students the best experience I need to take them to these countries half way across the world. The best way I can do this is through Virtual Reality!

Virtual Reality headsets will allow my students the total package!

I can create lesson plans and curriculum that will allow the students to really feel like they are in Israel, Saudi Arabia, India, Kenya and South Africa, just to name a few of the places we discuss during the school year.

The Virtual Reality headset can be used for years and future classes. It is not a project that is disposable in just one academic year; instead, it will impact many students in years to come!
