My Students

New educational applications are coming out faster than ever and their possibilities are endless.

Working in the poorest congressional district in the country, my students come in at a wide range of academic levels.

They are enthusiastic and hard working, but many have large gaps in knowledge, number sense and/or basic math skills. As a teacher I make every effort to give them many opportunities to extend their work to higher levels and to raise the bar on their own personal expectations. They are welcome in my class for extra help or just a quiet place to work during any free periods of the day. I also strive to provide extra support for students struggling with basic skills and extra enrichment for students who are ready to take their work to the next level.

My Project

An iPad for classroom use will open a whole world of opportunities to my students. They can create their own videos where they explain a math problem using apps like Educreations or access the online component of our new math curriculum where they can submit their classwork electronically. Additionally, my students will be able to use it for Internet research and homework before and after school and at lunch. Finally, the iPad will be used for group projects, visual modeling of complicated math topics, and for online math enrichment activities for students who finish their work early. The possibilities are endless!

In today's world, educational technology for classroom use is not a privilege, it is a necessity.

However, budget cuts mean that my school only has outdated computers that often don't work. Please help me provide more individualized opportunities for my students!
