Mrs. Jennifer Datema
Add Me as a Friend!
Osolo Elementary School
Class Information:
Room Number: 107
Students per Class: 18
Class Description:
I have a pretty gifted class this year. It consists of 11 boys and 7 girls with a range in diversity. I have one special needs student who is adjusting well in the classroom. Unfortunately I do not have computers inside my class. I am working on getting some for my students. I feel that allowing them to use technology helps them expand their learning.
Kindergarten Teacher
I feel that my class needs to have a wide range of learning activities to help challenge their minds. Having cameras or any other type of technology to help them reach beyond the normal learning activities and to be able to use their imagination will help them succeed.
