My Students

I am biased, but I teach the best students at the best school in the world. Our students face numerous challenges, but they still work their hardest to achieve their goals daily.

Our school is a K-8 school, and is considered high poverty by the state, with roughly 700 students, who are largely special needs or have a parent serving in the military.

We have the second highest population of special needs children, ESE children, and children who have a father, mother, or both parents in the military in our district.

We are a Title I school with minimal resources. Every teacher at our school works to provide our students with a first class education, while helping them to overcome the many obstacles in their lives.

Our students are in before and after school care, due to one or both parents serving in the military and often deploying. Our students experience the transient life of military families and are often having to adjust to new environments, expectations, and education standards. I strive to help my students transition fluidly and work hard to catch them up on the curriculum they've missed.

My Project

With our tech-driven world, my students need to become fluent with technology in order to find success later in life. Unfortunately, many of my students do not have access to technology at home. I am responsible for preparing these kids for what’s coming next in their lives and I need some help. We were blessed to recently receive iPads and tablets through other grants.

Now we need organization, storage and headphones to utilize this technology.

The Unitek charging station and micro cables will allow all of our devices to charge at the same time in a central location. This will ensure that all devices are ready to use when my students arrive. This will also help us keep our devices in good shape, so we can use them for years to come. The headphones will allow students to complete individualized assignments on Khan academy and Prodigy without distracting those around them. Stations will be specifically aligned to each students' needs.

This grant will not be limited to benefiting a single student but all 150+ of my current students and the countless students to come. I will be able to properly care for and manage all technological devices that we use in the classroom. The charging station and micro cords will help our classroom remain organized. The headphones will allow for individualized activities based on specific student needs.
