My Students

My class is a group of amazing students who work together as a team to make our class a Happy Class. We worked together to create a plan of how we want our class to be... and we decided we want to be a Happy Class.

My students love learning and love our school!

We have fun and we work hard. My kids are a group of readers, writers, mathematicians, artists, scientists, word studiers, and friends. My students help each other to be their best.

My Project

A new projector will greatly enhance my student's ability to see the screen in our classrooms clearly, and follow along with instruction, modeling and note-taking without dimmed lights or blurred vision getting in their way.

We need a new projector in order to clearly see what is under the document camera - something we use for almost every period, every day - and do our best work in class.

In math, for example, the teacher (and students!) use our document camera to model problems from our lesson. Usually, we have to turn off two of three lights just to barely see what's on the screen. The dimness in the room makes it difficult for some students to see their own work, and the screen is still not clear to students in the back. This new projector will help us focus on the lessons and use technology in an effective way!
