My Students

My students range from age 4 to 12 years. They are the most caring, respectful, busy, smart, funny, inquisitive bunch of kids. They keep me on my toes daily. Most of my students reside in the public housing development that borders our school. An increasing number of students reside in homeless shelters or other temporary housing. We also have a large population of students who are new to the country.

They come to us with many different needs and challenges.

I see most of the students in the school, including students who have physical and learning disabilities. All students are encouraged to learn and are held to the same standards; I just have to reach them in many different ways. One thing they all have in common is that they love coming into the Computer Lab! I try to incorporate all subject areas and collaborate with classroom teachers so the children stay excited while learning.

My Project

My students have unique names and to honor who they are, I would like to give them the opportunity to design tee-shirts and accessories with their names on them. They will use the Cricut design space to make projects that can be transferred to the heat press onto their choice of items. This project can also bring out their creativity in designing items for school spirit days, sports events, as well as other school-related events. For upper grades, this project can also help my students raise money for trips and class activities by selling their uniquely designed products.
