My Students

Girls Rock! I know it and I'm sure that you do too! Now, I just need to convince my lovely, young ladies! I teach at a single gender public school school in the inner-city.

The population at my school is one hundred percent minority girls with approximately forty percent categorized as ESL or ELL.

All of my students are on the free lunch program and live in low-income neighborhoods. District issues with staffing and resources are causing my students to miss educational experiences that will help them find success in college and beyond. These are wonderful, young ladies with a thirst for knowledge and my mission is to provide them with the tools and knowledge they need to rise above their current circumstances.

My Project

This laptop will make a difference in my girls' lives and education by allowing me to create engaging and interactive lessons. Some of my girls' favorite activities are friendly math competitions using Kahoot or Prodigy, interactive web quests, and real-world videos that help make math relevant.

This MacBook will help me differentiate lessons and activities to better support my ALL of my girls.

Our current computer is so out of date that I am not able to access websites and interactive activities that would engage the girls in the lesson and help them understand the concepts in a way that is meaningful to them. Your donation will allow me to differentiate instruction in a way that can meet the academic needs of my students in an exciting and relevant way.
