• My students have really taken on this project and have been excited about teaching younger students. They are answering questions from their younger “students” with confidence, and checking on them from time to time to make sure they are successful in using them. They even took on the responsibility of talking to the teachers of the younger…[Read more]

  • It took a while for my students to get used to the idea that they were not only going to have to learn how to use the Rocketbooks for themselves, but master their use and learn how to teach others how to use the notebooks. They were nervous about it, but knew they needed to take it serious because the education of younger kids who needed some…[Read more]

The newness has worn off and they are now asking more serious questions instead of just wanting to ask Alexa to play their favorite song. They still will look at me before they ask something new, because they are still unsure of if they are allowed to use Alexa to help them. It…[Read more]

  • In my almost eighteen years of teaching, I have spoken with many eighth graders receiving specially designed services about plans for their future. As a result of these conversations, I have asked myself how often my students are reaching out independently for resources, and have come to realize my students are not setting goals, furthering…[Read more]
