My Students

Our students love to learn through the use of technology. The use of technology is necessary for our students to do their best in school each day.

Our students live in an urban community.

Most students are being raised in single family homes and qualify to receive a free lunch. Despite the obstacles our students may have, they are excited to broaden their horizons, learn about the world around them and are excited to prepare for their future in work and education.

My Project

I teach grades pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Our students use computers and various other types of technology to learn and reinforce subject matter in all areas. Younger students gather on the carpet to be introduced to the technology lesson, use the interactive whiteboard, and listen to read aloud stories.

A new carpet would benefit all students and provide for a comfortable place to sit and learn.

Our current carpet is in poor condition and does not fit well in the shape of the classroom. This requested carpet has a separate space for each student to sit. A new carpet would be perfect for our youngest students.
