My Students

My students are bright, ambitious, eager to learn, and are fun to teach. They are hard-working, generous, cooperative and take their education very seriously. But, many are economically disadvantaged and require additional resources in my reading class.

Unfortunately, my students will be unable to engage in a typical classroom environment over the next month or so because of Florida’s shelter in place order.

My tenth-grade students are determined to learn and I am too. My classroom consists of 90% male and 10% females, with low to high educational abilities. High needs, special needs to challenging and talented are all in one classroom. My school strives to reach every student, no matter who they are or where they come from. I want to overcome the hindrances and everyday snags to enhance technology to re-engage my students.

My students love technology and being able to connect with me via video these items will allow various learning styles and information is at our fingertips.

My Project

Using the HUE HD Camera and video tripod will allow all students to follow along with me through modeling. They will then be able to become more independent, by seeing me model their own thinking.

Using the HUE HD camera with the video tripod, I am able to teach, read and instruct virtually in groups because students will have guidance by me modeling 100% with the teacher projecting the assignment during small group time.

Having this device will also open windows of opportunities that were not previously available.

It will certainly make my life easier in the classroom and now teaching virtually.

Also, I will be able to label all my books and organize the many books I have in the classroom by using the cart and Cricut labeler.

Organization is truly the key to my class.
