My Students

My students are an amazing, hardworking group of fourth through eighth graders.

"Education isn't the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire" -William Butler Yeats.

Many of my students have not had a chance to travel outside of our very rural area. Some of my students have had to deal with trauma in their lives. This has a huge impact on their education. Although all of my students are talented, each of them come to my classroom because they have some sort of weakness and need special services. Students come to my classroom for social, emotional, or academic support. ​Your support will allow my students to have materials and tools to foster lifelong learning.

My Project

My students need a Microsoft Surface Go and type cover to practice basic math facts, use Khan Academy to learn essential math skills they are lacking, read books at their level, listen to audio books, and so much more.

Imagine having the technology to allow students to set their own goals and challenge themselves to learn as much as they can.

I envision students using the Surface Go after finishing their lesson. I would use the Surface Go as part of a small group center. Then students would be able to work together to solve challenging problems while I work with another small group of students.
