My Students

My students would greatly benefit from an upgrade in the classroom. They thrive when utilizing technology in an educational setting. Unfortunately there is not enough technology to be shared across the school. Students are often paired with each other and use classroom resources when lessons attempt to incorporate current technology.

My students are enthusiastic about learning and love to work cooperatively.

They truly shine when they are engaged in an interactive assignment. They tend to welcome any form of technology and would love something new to spice up their learning environment.

My Project

I would like to request a new Dell Latitude Laptop for the students in my classroom. Students flourish when they are excited about the lessons they are experiencing. In today's fast paced world, educators need attention grabbing, sometimes flashy presentations in order to pique the interest of young learners.

A new laptop would greatly assist in the process of combating disengagement and make students more enthusiastic about learning in the classroom.

Powerpoint presentations, supplemental videos, and educational games help to improve the learning experience in today's teaching world. A new laptop would make that possible. It would be helpful for inputting current grades and giving students more up to date feedback on their work as well as maintaining contact with parents and staff alike.
