My Students

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

My students are creative, clever, and very spontaneous.

They like to move. They love to read, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households 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 hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Our school don't have enough funds to be able to purchase a Starfall membership for each classroom to be able to use technology in each classroom as part of STEM.

STEM is very important since every child should be able to have access to technology and science at home as well in school.

Each classroom will be able to learn about all subjects like math, science, reading, and listening.

Technology is very essential to be able to use in our classroom daily. Our students need to be able to use it to be ready for new jobs. They can be able to do this program on their own and solve problems. It's important to be able to share with our community about starfall and they can use it at home as well.
