My Students

My students are incredible! My students are in kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grade. They are curious, inquisitive, hard-working, and dedicated. All of my students have Individualized Educational Plans because they have been diagnosed with a disability. All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch at school. All of my students come from high poverty areas, and they all love coming to school. My students are brilliant individuals who learn differently than their peers. These students will be successful, and it's my job to create learning opportunities that ensure this.

My Project

My students love using technology to enhance their learning. Doing math on paper or whiteboards gets really boring for my students. Being proficient with technology is a life skill that I think every college bound student should have, and unfortunately my school doesn't have the means to provide this to our students. Being proficient with technology is a skill needed now for standardized testing since multiple grades take their state tests on the computer. With each and every one of my students taking these tests and ensuring they are on track to be college bound, I feel like I need to take it upon myself to help fix this problem! I am requesting the accessories needed in order to maintain a user-friendly technology learning station that will help me to create learning experiences that are both tailored to student need and driven by building technology competency. I know that being able to have students take advantage of the amazing math apps available on the iPads will ensure students stay excited about their learning and be able to apply their math skills in multiple ways. Whether they are playing strategy games like "Set"/ "Allowance" or practicing skills with "Squeebles Fractions"/ "Operation Math Code Squad" I know that students will be excited to practice and apply skills. I also know that I will be able to better differentiate instruction to ALL of my students as the iPad can be utilized to personalize instruction.

We need the appropriate accessories to make this learning opportunity possible!

I believe they deserve to have the same access to technology of their suburban peers and an opportunity to have their education personalized and differentiated. I know that my students will definitely appreciate the opportunity to use the iPads to further their learning!
