My Students

Our students are an energetic and passionate group of children. They are creative spirits and love to experience new things. However, like most students in impoverished urban areas, our children have to battle situations and circumstances that make the ability to focus on school and learning difficult.

I believe that one way for our students to excel and reach their hopes and dreams is through creative instruction.

They are a fun group of kiddos and I want them to know there are so many people rooting for their success.

My Project

It is important for teachers and students to keep up with the latest advancements in education to spark an interest in academics and learning. Education is changing every single day, and so are the strategies and devices to ensure creative engagement. Equipping each student with a classroom iPad gives my students and I the opportunity to embrace the challenge.

The use of iPads would allow my students to explore apps and programs that complement class instruction and give them real-time feedback on skills mastered or approaching mastery.

iPads would also give students the chance to engage in projects more effectively outside the classroom by communicating through video chat and sharing information in the moment.

I truly believe that when students feel their instruction and learning are superior, then their ability to reach achievement is superior. I would love to give my students the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of education and student learning.
