Teach 21 Reflection

Being a part of Teach 21 has meant so much to me. I'm a teacher who thinks and operates "outside the box." Having access to the SmartBoard has enabled me to be outside of that box so much more. My students have enjoyed using it to practice reading and math concepts, and it has given my visual and tactile learners opportunities to flourish because I have been able to consistently teach them the way they learn best. My lower level students have shown progress (though slow) from the beginning of the year to now. This is evident on classwork, homework, teacher made assessments, and EOQ scores. I don't know what I would do without my SmartBoard!
