My Students

My class is full of energetic, dedicated students who have an undeniable love of learning. They are fascinated by the world of learning and love hands-on activities. They are eager to learn to read and write, but they currently lack some of the tools needed to help them accomplish their goals.

My students are excited to be active participants in their learning.

They get excited when it is their turn to use the technology we have available in our classroom.My focus is to expose my students to as many digital-age experiences as possible. My students are eager to learn and experience new things. They are ambitious and they truly believe they can do anything they set their minds to. We are a charter school so our students make the choice to come here everyday. It's a choice I love making everyday as well!

My Project

My students would use the iPad with a protective case to complete literacy centers which would include Google Docs, QR Codes, research and composing their writing. If my students had more technology available, there is no limit to to what could be accomplished. The donations to my project will enable my students to become a 21st Century Classroom. This project will enable more students to access and improve their use of technology on a daily basis.

This project will make a positive difference by exposing my students to an additional piece of technology in the classroom, allowing them to explore another tech-based creative outlet.

My first grade students love creating digital projects and researching different topics. They enjoying reading digital books on devices and becoming more proficient 21st Century Learners. The classroom instruction will be enhanced and more students will become active participants in their learning.
