My Students

I am preparing for a technological future! Our country provides many resources that can be accessed online. I am in a big school, however, I share a computer lab with over 50 other teachers and over 900 students. It would be great to have access directly in our classroom, at all times.

My class is in the eighth largest school district in the nation, serving over 207,548 students in 250 schools.

Our own elementary school serves over 900 students with a faculty of over 50 teachers. I am committed to preparing my students for jobs that have not even been created yet. Technology will be a great part of that job market. Knowing this, I want to have the opportunity to involve students with computers whenever it is possible. With one computer lab to share at our school, that time is limited. However, the teachers on our grade level are attempting to bring in notebook laptops for quick and direct usage of learning games provided by our district. The students and I will appreciate all efforts to help us realize this goal.

My Project

Imagine a classroom where students have access to online resources at their desk! Where they can keyboard, practice math and phonic skills, take Accelerated Reader comprehension tests, and various beginning reader activities. Imagine students being able to experience differentiated work set specifically for them and administered at their own pace. These are the benefits of computers in the classroom. The possiblilites are limitless and as a teacher, I want to give this opportunities to my students. My class needs two computers to make this happen.

One computer at a time, each one makes a difference and gives students a chance to access the resources that our district and school work so hard to provide.

I am striving to prepare our students for a rapidly advancing technological world. Help me prepare my students by giving them access to computers in the classroom. Your support is overwhelmingly appreciated. Thank You!
