Class Information:
Room Number: 2
Students per Class: 26
Class Description:
Our class is a vibrant, diverse group. We use digital photography to create anything we can think up. Our school is located in the Great San Joaquin Valley. We are close to the Silicone Valley, but have limited technological resources; a television, DVD player, three student computers, and one teacher computer (often used by students). We do have some exciting things. We have creative minds, internet access, a data projector, 3 classroom computers, 6 chromebooks, my personal laptop, my iPad, my iPhone, and digital camera.

My Philosophy:
Today's classrooms take lots of creativity to motivate struggling to gifted learners. The children come into our classroom with many hurdles to overcome; incredible academic challenges, learning disabilities, foster care placement, poor self image, too many to list. Technology is the fuel to get many students excited about learning. Although there are many difficulties in education, there are great rewards too. I witness a beautiful metamorphosis as my students as they become readers and writers. Please help me reach out to my students with the use of technology in our classroom. Thanks for your time and interest, Brenda Hall
