My Students

My school is made up of a racially, economically, linguistically, and culturally diverse group of middle school students who are passionate about using technology in the classroom and eager to have teachers who integrate technology effectively into their instruction. Although my school is historically low-performing, the administration, staff, and students are committed to changing perceptions, breaking barriers, fostering growth, and achieving our goals.

The shift to distance learning has been difficult for many of my students, especially since it requires technology, something that many of my students do personally have and do not have access to due to school and library closings.

My Project

This versatile Chromebook will help bridge the digital divide and give a deserving middle school student access to distance learning resources.

Sadly, many students do not have access to technology at home, and with our school and library closed, these students have very limited access to distance learning materials.

The occasional paper packet is not enough to keep students on track.

With the help of our counselors, I will work to identify the student who is most in need of technology at home and ensure that it gets into their hands.
