My Students

My students are eager learners! Their excitement when they accomplish a project or create something is a blessing to see.

Our school is in a small town where it is hard to provide opportunities for low income students.

Like many schools, we are on a tight budget, so many of my supplies come from my own pocket or donations from parents. Many parents can not donate, and I find myself spending more and more on my room trying to give my students more opportunities. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing my students become thinkers and problem solvers.

My students are amazing kids who deserve to have every resource possible.

My Project

My students would love access to Alexa in our classroom. I have classrooms on different campuses, so I am asking for two Alexas. My students are excited about the thought of having new technology in our room. It would be like having another teacher in our room. The students could ask Alexa questions, like how to spell a word, while I am working with other students.

Alexa will be a wonderful addition to our classroom!!!!

Let's face it, Alexa is amazing and so much fun to use. My students would be able to ask Alexa questions instead of having to get the computer out. She would be a valuable tool in our classroom.
