My Students

Within my school, almost 90% of students live in poverty. While the school has initiatives that provide students with free breakfast, lunch, snacks, and weekend food bags, many students are unable to come to school with supplies and spend time in classrooms that are not fully equipped with necessary materials.

My fourth graders are resilient individuals who face many challenges when they leave school; although there are a variety of trials in the world, our classroom is a place of solace and success.

Fourth grade is a time where students have deep, clear feelings about school and the world around them - and they let those feelings be known! They are learners who dive into rigorous academic content and require a comfortable, predictable learning environment.

Every student deserves a quality education, and my fourth graders are no exception. They are kind, capable learners who amaze me by what they accomplish daily and throughout the school year.

My students deserve a classroom environment equipped with adequate materials that help them receive a quality education.

My Project

As learners at a time where technological literacy is crucial, my students need opportunities to engage with technology while learning! Anytime I give my students the opportunity to use technology during stations through various websites and programs, engagement is instantly boosted and students feel more connected to what we are learning. As we all know, however, technology is only useful when it works. We use computers a lot during the day that quickly lose their charge, other classrooms have to use our cart, and some days the computers take over 15 minutes just to get set up and turned on.

A full-size iPad would be an amazing way for my students to have a secured way of accessing engaging learning programs during their station time.

This iPad would be an excellent instructional technology resource that would be used exclusively by students in my classroom. This iPad will be used primarily for station activities like Reflex Math, Epic, and i-Ready to allow students a differentiated learning experience that meets their needs. Since my fourth graders are also busy learning Virginia Studies content, they could have fun playing the review games on SOLpass! We thank you in advance for your support!
