My Students

Is your computer older than you? The computers in my classroom are older than the students. With technology moving forward at such a fast pace, our district is still in the prehistoric era, yet they demand teachers to incorporate technology in the classroom.

My students are a multinational/multicultural melting pot.

They strive to do their best,but 98% of my students qualify for a free and reduced lunch. They attend an economically disadvantaged school with teachers who work collaboratively to teach and nurture every child despite limited resources.

My Project

The laptop will allow my students to improve reading with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension using educational software. With guidance and support from adults, my students will use technology to produce and publish writing as a well as to interact and collaborate with others.

I have 26 wonderful students in my classroom.

For some of them, the classroom will be the only place where they will be exposed to technology. For some, this will be the first opportunity for them to touch and use a laptop.
