My Students

Fourth and fifth grade students crave creative ways to learn. Having been in elementary school for three or four years, they require more innovative ways to teach!

My students come to school every day, excited to see what engaging lessons will be introduced, what problems they can solve and what creative outlets they will be allowed to explore!

My students represent an incredibly diverse population of learners from many backgrounds and countries. I love how they strive to learn about each other and welcome all differences!

My Project

With an increase in class size this year, we no longer have a Chromebook for each student in my classroom. Without this addition, students would not have equitable access to all content! The incredible power that a 1:1 classroom has over learning is palpable. Students come to school excited to bring more technology in the classroom. With so many students, it is critical for a teacher to be able to fully engage them all, using all resources!

Students who have their own devices are taught amazing lessons in responsibility, keyboarding and engagement.

We only need one more Chromebook to reach our goal! With this additional Chromebook, project based learning and creativity can soar. Students can work together or individually to help figure out how they learn best.
