My Students

My amazing second-grade students are creative thinkers who are curious and love to explore the world around them. I teach students with extremely diverse backgrounds, cultures, languages, and abilities. Sixty-three percent of my students come from faraway places such as India, Mexico, Dominica, and the Congo. They speak foreign languages such as Spanish, French, Tamil, Telugu, Korean, Urdu, Chinese and more. Forty-seven percent of our students are on free or reduced-price lunch. They learn best when they are actively engaged with hands-on activities. They are kind and come together to help each other as a classroom family.

My students will be more engaged in their learning and thrive with these wonderful materials!

I would describe my classroom as engaging, supportive, rigorous, and full of love. I have a strong passion for teaching. I provide my students with a motivational and caring classroom community that is conducive to learning. I teach all subjects in a general education classroom. My students learning styles and abilities require reteaching and enrichment in all subjects. The resources that I am requesting will really draw my students into their learning environment.

My Project

Technology is all around. Students are captivated by colors and songs. Using an iPad with apps like My-On, Starfall, Reading A-Z, and I-Ready would give my students fun and engaging resources to improve their reading skills and abilities. Students would be able to use a device that is more simplistic compared to a desktop computer in a more comfortable learning space. The protective case would ensure our technology is well cared for.

Technology provides diverse methods to meet differentiated instruction and experiences to target individual needs and ensure success in education

The students would be able to use the iPad mini in a small group or by themselves for researching biographies, animals, famous people or whatever else they would like to know more about to use in their informational writings. We could use the iPad mini to take virtual field trips in science or to help increase math fluency with skill drill apps.

Students can be engaged in learning individually or collaborate with partners. With your support, we can improve so many children's academic skills. Thank you for considering my classroom project.
