My Students

I teach 3rd grade to a class of 22 general education students and 3 Special Day Class students. My students are creative, engaged, and technology savvy. Having this laptop will bring me and my students a step further into the 21st century! It is amazing how much and often we depend on our technology to work correctly and efficiently. We use Google Classroom, Zearn, typing-club, and PE related sites daily and having a device to model the experiences will be greatly beneficial to all involved!

My Project

By funding this project, you will help my students and me with all the technology based learning that we have to offer. This laptop will provide opportunities for students to connect with resources that their own class chrome books do not allow. The CD drive also gives me the opportunity to play the old beloved School House Rock for grammar education.

This laptop will put the T in our STEAM!

I am a highly visual teacher and having this laptop will greatly improve my ability to reach all students! My students enjoy seeing their social studies, science, art, and writing projects projected on the big screen. It validates their hard work!
