My students are exposed to a literacy rich environment in my classroom. They really enjoy the reading and writing that we do every day in our class.
I work with a diverse group of students at a gifted magnet middle school.
I teach English. My students range from gifted, high achieving students, to students with special needs, and those who struggle academically. They differ in socioeconomic status and which neighborhoods they live in, which makes for very diverse classes.
My students strive to achieve success everyday. They work hard to improve their skills and are an amazing group of youth to work with.
My students are really fired up about learning. They come into my class ready to learn and give it their all. My students need supplies to be as ready as they are. Currently, I have a set of chromebooks, but no efficient means of charging and storing them. This makes it very likely that students will not be able to use the resources we have available.
A charging cart is necessary to keep our classroom chromebooks charged up and stored safely so that my students have the materials they need, when they need them.
We use the chromebooks almost daily in class. When students have access to computers, they have more access to quality literature and research materials. They can work collaboratively and give highly effective peer feedback. With that comes the opportunity for them to learn how to be responsible digital citizens who are working towards becoming fluent in using computer software that is necessary to their future success.
As a teacher my goal is to support students by making sure I give them all the materials they need to become literate individuals. Please help me reach my goal by donating.
