My Students

I am a Reading Specialist at a small school located in Alabama. I service the teachers and students in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade. My school is a Title 1 school located in a small rural town with over 70% of our student population qualifying for free and reduced lunch.

Our teachers spend countless hours working with students to improve reading foundation skills.

Despite the hard work and dedication the teachers devote daily, we realize we need the help of our parents. This is why I am currently working to help the teachers improve the home to school connection.

Family Involvement is one the most important, but overlooked aspect in academic success. When families are vested in the education of their children they often do better in school, have better grades, and grow up to be successful citizens.

My Project

In an effort to improve academic achievement through student engagement, our school has purchased two web-based reading and math programs for our students. Our students absolutely love these programs and beg to use them everyday. Unfortunately, due to limited funding, the students must share one lab computer with over 150 students. This limits the amount of time they can spend on the computers and using these programs.

Technology means knowledge.

The purchase of a new chromebook for our students will give them assess to these programs and so much more. The will have endless amounts of information at their fingertips. It will allow them to complete research projects, watch educational videos, type reports, listen to online read-alouds, and so much more. The use of technology in a classroom is boundless and powerful.
