My Students

Our school serves students from grades PreK to 8th grade in a low income/high poverty school district. We are an IB (International Baccalaureate) school where our focus is to inquire about the world around us and to be internationally minded. We are also a STEM school providing essential 21st century skills to our students.

Our students come from many diverse cultural backgrounds and it allows us to learn about diversity from each other and to seek more multicultural experiences.

My students are also enrolled in a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade partial French Immersion class where they receive instruction in French for a portion of their day. My students thrive to learn about the world, many cultures, and love speaking French!

My Project

Many students in our school come from different backgrounds. We have about 30 different countries represented in our school. However, many of our students are from low income family and do not have the resources to travel or even participate in field trips. As a STEM school, we are always trying to expose our students to new technology and virtual reality is an exciting tool for students to access information in a global society.

Using virtual reality headsets and accessing Google Expedition will provide hundreds of field trips for my students to learn more about their own culture and the diversity around them.

I envision my students being able to use various apps, including Google Expedition, to take a journey around the world in familiar and unfamiliar places. I hope that students who come from a different country can show their peers about where they come from. I am hoping this experience can help foster inclusion and promote diversity and multiculturalism, as well as open the doors for students to become citizens of the world.
