My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are faced with multiple challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students love to learn and explore new technologies.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households, homeless and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

Most students have a hard time reading, writing, and completing math. I want to create an environment where they can feel relaxed.

My Project

The pens and markers that I am requesting for my students will help assist them with the resources that we currently have. The students will utilize the rocketbooks as tools to assist them in note taking and organizing their materials. In my classroom, we utilize interactive notebooks. Students are able to utilize this technology to capture notes or illustrations and instantly place it in their Google drive. Students will be able to take notes in the rocketbooks during a lesson or review and summarize information from text to share with their peers. Students will also be able to illustrate their interpretation of text and share it with their peers on Google drive in our Google classroom. I am very excited about the students utilizing this resource since my school has increased its usage of Google suites. Students are able to keep track of their materials and share information with classmates with the use of the rocketbook.
