My Students

My students come from a diverse community. Here in South Arizona, a border town, affords me with classes composed of primarily English Language Learners students. My students are hungry and eager to learn. They feed off each other's diverse background to look for creative solutions to solve reading, math, and science problems.

My class is full of potential energy, and can tremendously focus on a task when technology is used.

It is evident that my class can overcome every challenge that is presented to them because I can see their persistent attitude until they meet their goals.

My Project

My students are using their technology on a daily basis to create, manipulate and enhance their assignments and projects. I want my students to be engaged and proficient while using technology. The stylus pen will help students type faster, create art, posters and select choices easier than using their fingers. Students at this age are growing, and their motor skills are not fully developed. Students will be using the stylus pens to complete their writing assignments and digital art lessons, which will be published and posted around the classroom.

With the help of the stylus, the students will be able to write and select items on the iPad screen.

Students will also be able to open, close and select apps and select answers while they practice concepts in my class.
