My Students

Do you remember what is was like when you were growing up? Were you the child who was excited to go to school or were you the child who did not want to attend school? As you are drawing back those memories, I want to take a second and introduce my class.

My 1st grade students come to school eager to learn and sustain new knowledge.In many cases, my student have walked to school and did not receive enough sleep the night before, but regardless of the struggles they might be facing they come with a smile.

They enter my classroom feeling safe and excited, the mixture of personalities and attitudes allows for us to adapt to changes very rapidly. In my classroom we not only learn academics, we learn that we must accept and respect each other to be successful.

My 1st grade class strives to be their very best every single day, despite the struggle that they carry within. In their hearts they believe they can accomplish success. Now is up to us to give them the right tools. Help me help my students!

My Project

As the 21st century advances, we tend to rely more and more on technology. In the classroom, technology is used vary heavily to reach all learners and across all subjects.

My first grade class currently does not own a set of headphones.

We have been challenged when trying to complete assignments, like close reading or any academic subject that requires the student to listen to audio. Students would have a better chance to strive in their academics with their own headphones.

If headphones were available, it would allow my students to focus and engage during their computer work. Therefore, you are providing a higher chance of success and knowledge retention.
