My Students

My computer lab is a hub of energy and excitement. Over 1,300 students from Pre-K through 5 visit our two labs each week and use technology to learn and explore. They are products of a technology age, and I am there to guide their exploration and learning through technology.

Our population is very diverse.

We have many nationalities, cultures and abilities. We are a Title One school and in a very low-income community where most children receive free lunch. We have an in-depth special education program, a gifted and talented program and a dual language program. My computer lab is used by students in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade, and many teachers too! They need a soft, clean place to sit and learn and we need disinfectant to keep it clean! An elementary school classroom is like no other place in the world. We are a home for our little ones for seven hours a day. Teachers not only provide an education in math, reading and other school subjects; we provide stability, love, acceptance and support for our amazing little people. We educate the whole child. Personally, I strive to teach values, love and acceptance in my room as well.

My Project

Our room is a home away from home and we need a clean, comfortable place to sit and learn! Our classroom carpet was used all day, every day and it was in dire need of replacement! We received a new soft, clean mat with interchangeable pieces will give us a clean, safe place to sit and the ability to replace damaged pieces. Now we need to replace some damaged pieces! We are also asking for general class supplies to keep our room running smoothly and looking fancy!

My students need to be comfortable to be at their best and learn everything they can!

A clean, safe place to sit is very important to learning and your contributions to our project will provide a new mat and supplies to keep our room in the best shape possible!
