My Students

Remember wanting to poke your eye out with your pencil when being assigned a tedious, monotonous project in middle school? Writing and demonstrating comprehension skills are two major feats known to LA/SS students.

My students crave alternative methods to display deeper understanding and critical thinking skills.

They are a hard working group of kids who take responsibility for their learning. As Steve Jobs put it, "Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." I want my students to grow into leaders, not just in class, but on campus as well.

My Project

Using Chromebooks and tablets in the classroom is not only a natural motivator, but works as the ultimate carrot for students, while enhancing their self-esteem and enthusiasm. Students will be able to access a wealth of information as well as use apps (Animoto, School Fuel, Spring Pad, Middle School Confidential, Socrative, Quizlet, Google Drive etc.) to demonstrate their knowledge of the standards we are learning in a current, stimulating manner, with confidence.

"Happiness equals smiles minus frowns.

That's what life is all about," ~ Steve Wozniak We thank you in advance for your consideration and support of this project which will make a HUGE impact on our classroom.
