My Students

My sixth grade ELA and Social Studies class is full of heart, discovery, learning, growing, and loving! I have students from many different backgrounds, most of whom are receiving free or reduced-price lunch because of their financial situations.

A majority of my students do not read on grade level, but this does not make them inferior.

They thrive when given the opportunity to read texts that make sense to them, and they give all of their effort to better themselves. I am hoping to enrich their lives and improve their learning one day at a time! I would not be in this profession if I didn't love and care for each face that I see every morning. Let's ensure that every child's future is bright!

"Even on your worst day, you can still be some child's best hope."

My Project

With the addition of three HP Chromebooks into our classroom, my students will be able to access websites that reinforce skills and enable higher level learning. Chromebooks will not only become a tool that will help create more authentic learning experiences in the classroom, but also build twenty first century skills that our children need in order to be successful in a quickly evolving technical world.

With these Chromebooks, my students will be able to create both independent and collaborative projects in order to show a true understanding of concepts.

Our classrooms are not yet at the level of technology to meet their needs as learners. This grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more. Chromebooks are integral and the amazing tools that should be present in every classroom. I believe that they should not be held back because of lack of funds, but deserve to explore and learn at the same level as students who have this access. Our classroom will be forever changed by the addition of Chromebooks.
