My Students

The students in my class this year are very energetic, curious, and determined learners! When indoors, they love to read, play math games, and write on Google Docs. Outside they love to play kickball, Chinese jumprope, and four square. They get along and take care of each other, always ready to lend a helping hand. They work on projects together in groups, and, in partnership, support each other in reading, writing, and math.

What makes my students so unique is that they represent a diverse ethnic and economical community.

Their daily experiences differ immensely, from having two hard working parents, multiple family dwellings, and after school care, to having stay at home moms, comfortable living spaces, and going home after school. Yet, they continue to demonstrate extreme kindness and a deep sense of caring for one another. The kids are loving and generous, never seen without a smile! The members of this community are extremely close knit and it feels more like extended family, than a neighborhood of strangers. I wouldn't want to teach anywhere else.

My Project

These two Lenovo Chromebooks will open a door into higher learning through the use of technology. Not only will my students learn essential 21st Century skills, like typing, how to use search engines, and how to safely navigate the internet, but they will be able to access an abundance of information for projects in Social Studies, Science and more!

The Chromebooks will also allow every student to stay up to date on current events through Newsela, while practicing strategies to develop comprehension of informational pieces.

In addition, through the use of technology, I am able to keep students that have a hard time focusing engaged, which frees up more time for me to conference with each child individually, more often.

I am also requested two Google Chrome Management Consoles to control content access and Lenovo Dot Repair extended service agreements to keep the laptops working.

So you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement and their love of learning!
