My Students

CMS is comprised of 1400+ 6th, 7th, and 8th students. Sixth grade was just added to this campus a year ago. We are at capacity and still growing.

How can we expect them achieve success when life tells them to fail?

A review of student school-wide data indicate that our students are economically disadvantaged. Most of our students are on free or reduced lunched. A lot of our students were affected by Hurricane Harvey and loss their homes and belonging. Most are still recovering, although it has been six months since the storm.

The students in my classroom are students with learning and emotional disabilities. These factors have expanded the achievement gap.

Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

Giving low-income students access to new technology is an investment in their future.

Having the set of iPads will allow for different structures of learning in my classroom.

The way they will be used is as a World Culture center. Students will be able to take a virtual tour of different countries around the world. Students could take pictures of historical sites locally and report back to the class and build peer to peer learning. They could collaborate on group findings by sharing through the iCloud. Students will also be able to connect with other students around the world in other classrooms in other countries and explore their lives and culture. I could download apps for various social studies skills such as map skills, latitude and longitude, types of maps, and etc., which would allow me to have activities for both my highest performing and most struggling students.
