My Students

My students are growing up in a high-risk area, where most people count them out before they even get started. They live in a neighborhood that is primarily in section 8 housing.

My students have persevered through obstacles such as trauma each and every day, but show great resilience as they show up to school every single day to learn exciting new things in my classroom.

We are a Title I school and all of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most students come to school without having any school supplies from home. It is my hope to update our classroom, by providing resources my students do not currently have access to. No donation is too small to make an impact on my students.

My Project

By receiving the document camera, you will allow the students in my third-grade classroom to follow along with any type of assignment visually. We will not be held back by not having the supplies and visuals to really allow my students to soar. Anyone in the public school system knows that copy machines are not always working which can make it hard to enlarge a document of students' work for modeling purposes. Not to mention the document camera will eliminate the number of copies needed because the students can use the projected image to demonstrate their understanding. The less paper we use the more trees that can be saved.

This document camera will bring endless possibilities to our classroom, and allow my students to learn through the use of technology.

We currently have a projector that will be compatible with this document camera. Please help provide the best resources to my students because they deserve the best.
