My Students

My classroom focuses on teaching the WHOLE child. My students are hardworking, empathetic, and good critical thinkers. I strive to support students in developing to their fullest potential in all aspects of their learning. We work together as a class to celebrate each other's successes, both big and small.

My classroom consists of 30 eager to learn emergent bilingual students.

All of my students are English learners and some have recently immigrated from Central and South America. They have goals such as one day being teachers, scientists, and doctors. In class we recognize and discuss the steps needed to take to accomplish these goals. Almost 95% of the students at my school are identified as coming from low-income households.

My Project

The HP Chromebooks requested will be used in myriad ways. Having additional Chromebooks in the classroom will enable students to research topics of interest, type and share their writing pieces in Google docs, and complete differentiated reading and math tasks depending on their abilities. The school I teach at pays for a website that places students in reading and math lessons at their individual levels, therefore having Chromebooks will allow students without computers/internet access at home the opportunity to do so at school.

Due to decreased funding, my school has not been able to keep up with replacing outdated and slow desktop computers.

These Chromebooks will enable us to increase the amount of time students use technology in a multitude of ways. Students will be able to research information according to their interests with much more frequency than they do with their typical once a week technology class. Student engagement will increase when they are given the choice to read a variety of articles based on their interests and reading levels. Having access to current technology will support students in learning necessary 21st century skills. These Chromebooks will aid in increasing creativity, productivity, and motivation to learn.
