My Students

I am a general education teacher in an ICT Kindergarten classroom. I teach a wonderful group of motivated students. As a teacher in a high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. It is my job to find different ways to help my students work through and overcome these challenges.

Despite the many challenges they face, my students are excited to learn each and every day.

I want to continue to foster that motivation by providing new and exciting learning experiences for them. I also want to make sure their learning environment is the very best it could be.

My Project

A new MacBook is a crucial tool for distance learning. My school is fully remote right now with the possibility of a return to hybrid learning at some point in the future. I currently teach live every day using Google Meet. My current laptop is seriously betraying me. It freezes, the microphone goes out, and the keyboard keys have just stopped working entirely. It makes teaching my Kindergarten class extremely difficult. I want to give my students the best possible learning experience I can. I want to keep them engaged and excited to learn in this difficult time. I use many instructional videos and read alouds, having a MacBook with compatible tools would make connecting with my students seamless.

A MacBook Pro will enhance the quality of videos and instruction during online learning because it will enable me to create the best and most visually, aesthetically, and academically pleasing and educational content for my students.

When my class returns to in-class/hybrid learning, the MacBook will be used for creating, editing, and publishing student stories, creating games, SEL instruction and parent contact. Thank you so much for any donation you are able to give.
