My Students

Genuine kindness and a compassionate community are the words that come to mind instantly when reflecting on my group of learners this year. Our school is nestled in a valley with majestic surrounding mountains.

Students have a connection to nature unlike many other schools.

We help families cut wood or harvest crops whenever we aren't in school. We work hard both at school and at home. Being that we are in a very rural setting, high-speed internet is not something we all have at home. For this reason, it is paramount that while in school everyone has an opportunity to access the Internet to both support and enrich their education. Currently, we have 8 laptop computers in class and we are so good at sharing computer time. You will be contributing to the futures of bright, kind, and hard-working children who have the work ethic to achieve explosive growth as learners.

My Project

I am very fortunate to have ten Chromebook computers in my classroom. These chromebooks are very useful in allowing small paired groupings to take turns using the computers to do research, take virtual field trips and complete skills specific lessons. The requested laptop computers would GREATLY enhance everyone's education, allowing freedom of movement and personalized seating for students. We would be able to take our learning to our seats or the carpet or in any place we choose. The Chromebooks would also increase the time in which students are able to use the technology because fewer situations of taking turns would have to happen to accommodate everyone. These computers will be a window into the endless world of knowledge.
