Mill Creek Elementary School
Folkston, Ga
Class Information:
Students per Class: 42
Class Description:
Mill Creek Elementary is a Title I school that enrolls 665 students. The student population is made up 68% who are economically disadvantaged and received free or reduced price lunch. I teach 42 enthusiastic 4th graders at Mill Creek Elementary. They are very excited about learning and love to get involved in projects. However, due to the shortage of funds, we are not able to request extra supplies. These children grow up in a small town and many of them never venture outside the county lines. Using newer methods of teaching combined with technology would allow these children to be involved in a new type of learning and experience things they have never worked with before. Students do tend to gain more knowledge and retain more skills when they are responsible for their own learning. Using some of the newer “gadgets” would be so exciting to these children.
