My Students

Students in our school come with a wide range of abilities, interests, and needs. We have a respect and understanding that everyone is different, yet equally important.

One common goal we all share in our school is a ​motivation for learning in a fun, comfortable, and engaging school environment.

With this, we are able to meet the needs of all the different learners at the same time. Our students understand that in our school, everyone gets what they need to be successful!

My Project

I would like to request a MacBook to assist me with accessing a wider variety of professional development opportunities and using current technology. A MacBook would allow and help me to access Apple's Education modules on the web. Apple offers and has many online courses through iTunes U and podcasts that can help me create a digital environment in my class and that would benefit my future students.

Having a MacBook would allow me to participate in webinars, and have access to educational apps.

I have seen how some of my peers have integrated technology in their classrooms and I believe that a MacBook would allow me to develop and integrate technology into my lessons. My goal is to build my knowledge and use of technology as a pivotal part of my instruction so that I can provide a diverse learning environment that is crucial to all my students' various learning needs.

My classroom environment will be greatly improved with the addition of a MacBook because it will allow me to integrate technology that would improve my students' learning outcomes through the curriculum and technology usage.
