My Students

My classroom is comprised of many students who are immigrants and speak a language other than English at home, are gifted, or part of our special education programs.

I love the start of each day as students line up ready to get to class.

They smile because they know that something exciting will happen. I keep them guessing at what new things I might try or how I will read, and even what I just might wear (I came dressed as Dr. Seuss one day). These students all have different interests, from playing sports to reading a good book, but they share a common bond, the bond of curiosity and that is truly an amazing gift.

My students live in a high poverty area in Arizona. Our school is a Title I campus, and 100% of the school is eligible for the free lunch program. Our focus goals are to greatly improve our writing and our math abilities, but a major focus is to improve our reading ability with fluency to comprehension in all aspects of our school and classroom.

My Project

The Pilot Podium is going to be a game-changer in our classroom snow and in the future. Supporting ass aspects of our classroom while being connected to our podium.

My students will be able to interact with the class and not back to back, giving students a truer learning experience and more teacher time.

Being able to present information to the class as a teacher or student will now be possible with face to face interaction and no more back of the head stares as we share,

Having all the tools at our fingertips in front of us as we share and teach gives students the chance and opportunity to have a better learning experience.

Your support will truly affect the change needed in our classroom today and in the future.
