Chromebooks for our Class

The use of Chromebooks aids in student learning of reading, writing, math, science and social studies. With these Chromebooks, students will receive personalized learning at their level and adapt as they learn. It will also help with our project-based learning (PBL) units.

My students deserve to be in a classroom that has adequate and up to date technology!

With this project, I'm hoping to create a 21st century learning environment, by providing a blend of authentic learning opportunities with up to date technology. Therefore, I'm working toward a full classroom set of Chromebooks for my students. Students will use the technology 1:1 throughout the day in many if not all content areas! This project will allow students to collaborate with each other, make connections and learn at their level.

Flexibility for Learning

I am looking to provide a more flexible learning environment for my students. I currently teach 6th Grade Writing and would love to provide alternative locations and furniture in my room so students can spread out and be comfortable while they explore their writing skills! I am looking to refill my bean bag chairs, add some Otto storage stools, and add some larger floor pillows. I feel that each student comes in with a unique learning style. What works as a writing space for one, might not work for all. Giving my students choice and ownership of their learning space is a goal I’d love to achieve.

Get On The Tomorrow Bus - Today!

The Gresham-Barlow School District is taking the concept of a mobile STEAM lab to new levels with the creation of a STEAM bus!

STEAM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. 

The Tomorrow Bus provides K-8 grade students access to equipment, resources, and high-interest projects.  Inspired staff will promote hands-on learning, exposure to career pathways and transferable skills and knowledge.  

The bus will be used at district schools as a portable STEAM classroom but it will also be available for community outreach and education.  The Tomorrow Bus could park at Gresham's Art Plaza during the summer.  Imaging kids playing at the splash pad and then visiting the bus to learn about the engineering taking place under the pad.

This campaign will help pay for the portable lesson kits that will be housed in the bus.  The bus will be loaded with lesson kits that can be switched out to keep STEAM learning exciting and engaging.
